Luciana Torrents

Lawyer

Hello! I am Luciana Torrents. I emigrated from Argentina to Spain at the age of 19 and since then, 16 years ago, I have lived in Europe. I have a law degree from the University of Barcelona, ​​and I am specialized both in foreigners and immigration as well as in Labor and Social Security Law. My profession and knowledge give me the opportunity to help people defend their rights, dignity, integrity and happiness. As a migrant woman, I understand first-hand how difficult it is to arrive in a new country and start from scratch. Start a new life in another society, in which everything is new. With different customs, language and idiosyncrasies. That is why I believe that in this integration process it is very positive to have the support of family, friends, acquaintances, organizations, etc., who help us fully develop in this new stage. This is the fundamental reason that drives me to actively collaborate as a volunteer in LatinHubUK. And I have the fervent conviction that if we unite strength, passion, enthusiasm and dreams, it is possible to achieve everything we set out to do, including feeling "at home" being thousands of kilometers from the country where we were born.
