Researcher

Marina joined LatinHubUK and brought a deep understanding of cultural interaction and adaptation. She first studied Anthropology focusing on aesthetics and social expression as part of cultural sensitivity, identity, originality and transformation. Having lived in different places, she found London diversity and chaos intriguingly reassuring. She embarked in interdisciplinary design studies at the University of London, focusing on social and environmental concerns.

She has also taken part in several design festivals and sustainability related events.

Anny Cordero

Cursé mis estudios de Derecho en Guayaquil, Ecuador, donde me gradué de abogada. Posteriormente, cursé un máster en Argumentación Jurídica en Alicante, España. Trabajé por más de seis años en una firma de asesoría tributaria en Ecuador, donde concentré mi práctica profesional en litigios en materia tributaria. Decidí darle un giro a mi vida y me vine a vivir a Londres hace un año. Hoy en día, estoy explorando otras alternativas a mi carrera como abogada, buscando ampliar mis oportunidades de crecimiento profesional. En cuanto a mis intereses, disfruto mucho de dibujar y pintar, lo que me ha llevado a tomar cursos para fortalecer mis habilidades y conocer las oportunidades que existen para en un futuro desenvolverme en este campo. Mi motivación para ser voluntaria en LatinhubUK nació de la necesidad que sentí al migrar de establecer contacto con la comunidad latina en Reino Unido, el obtener información sobre el proceso de adaptación y establecimiento en este país, pues como todos, pasamos por una fase de desorientación propia de llegar a un nuevo lugar con una cultura y estilo de vida distintos. Buscando proyectos que trabajen con la comunidad latina encontré a LatinhubUK y me interesé en su enfoque de promover la herencia cultural de esta comunidad. Me interesa participar para aunar esfuerzos en fortalecer la comunidad y brindar mi apoyo en las actividades que desarrollan para cumplir con sus fines.

Borja Costa

Borja Costa

Hey there! My name is Borja, I am a Spanish 27-year-old international trade graduate. Since I was a child I have developed an increasing interest towards the different cultures and languages worldwide. I believe this genuine interest pushed me to continuously think out of the box and help me develop a great empathy and tolerance for what is different. I am really keen on travelling, meeting new people and debating new ideas. I decided to do this volunteering with Latin Hub because I am currently looking for projects that interest me on a personal level and also, I have a special connection with the Latinamerican community.
