Alondra Bobadilla

2020-2022 Boston Youth Poet Laureate

Alondra Bobadilla nurtured her love for writing since she learned her first letters. In January 2020, she was named Boston's first-ever Youth Poet Laureate. Alondra uses her writing to highlight social issues that impact her and her community. Through her own work, she demonstrates how creative expression can be a powerful tool for youth to examine feelings around issues, find their voice, and speak up about the changes they want to see for their future. She attends UMass Boston.

Alondra performed "A Home of My Own" during the City of Boston's Immigrant Heritage Month Virtual Celebration in June 2020. Watch the virtual celebration.
