Partnerships & Support

Summary

Lourdes joined Humentum, fomerly LINGOs, in early 2011 as an administrative assistant. Now she works with the learning and collaborative team on looking after the relationships with our partners and ensuring all Humentum's events run smoothly. 

Before Humentum, Lourdes worked in the world of finance. Not as glamorous as you might think, but she filled the gap running her beauty treatment company – making sure the brides of Guatemala always look their best!

Lourdes lives just outside Guatemala City with her husband and two children. A day off is an ultimate dream... She loves reading, cooking, and listen to music. Her parents are from Cuba, so cooking and talking loud is an essential part of the household.

Q + A

What is your favorite band or music artist?

I love all types of music, but I really enjoy acoustic covers such as Boyce Avenue and also Boss nova, but I would not be giving my Latin side justice if I don´t hear a bit of salsa.
 

What advice would you give to your younger self if you could?

Don´t let fear or doubt stop you from accomplishing your dreams and don´t mind too much about what other people think about you.
