GROWING UP LATINO!
A CELEBRATION OF HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
ALL ABOUT HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th – October 15th every year. It is a time to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, culture, and extensive history of the American Latino community. What started out as just a week-long recognition back in 1968, has grown into an entire month as of 1988. Since then, the month has been celebrated nationwide with festivals, art shows, conferences, community gatherings, and much more!
The September 15th date is significant as it celebrates the start of a string of independence days for several Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua on September 15 – Mexico on September 16th – and Chile on September 18th. Also included are holidays that recognize Hispanic contributions such as the Virgin Islands-Puerto Rico Friendship Day which is celebrated in the US Virgin Islands the second Monday in October.
Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month I will be highlighting individuals who have made great contributions in their chosen profession and the community at large.
ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE…
Luis Rosa! The tables have turned and in this bonus episode Luis is interviewed by Emlen Miles-Mattingly, host of the Minority Money Podcast. Luis came to the U.S. at age 11 from the Dominican Republic. Growing up in New York City, he noticed the lack of financial literacy in his community and was inspired by his parents to work hard and pursue an education. He founded Build a Better Financial Future LLC and is the host of the On My Way to Wealth podcast. Luis was named one of Investment News 40 Under 40 in 2019 and Financial Advisor Magazine’s 10 Young Advisors to Watch. From participating as an FPA NexGen Ambassador & Host, to speaking at the CFP Board’s Diversity Summit, Luis uses his platform to help spread financial literacy as well as encourage younger and diverse planners to join and thrive in the industry.
