[WLHA 009]: We Live Here Auténtico! | Gilberto Pinela |
A Star Lighting the Way for More Representation, Opportunity, Communication and Access
What does living Auténtico mean to you, Gilberto?
Be your 150 percent self in every situation that you're in. When you walk into the room, let people know that you're there, but that you're there because you are being authentic to yourself. So that means that your confidence level is high. That means that not being cocky. Because that's a different story. But it means that you are present as your legit self.
Gilberto Pinela has been investing and empowering the Latino community in St. Louis for many years. He is a trailblazer, creator, producer and talent in many bilingual programming and organizations in our region.
Gilberto started his career in the US in New York in the hospitality industry, but he always dreamed of being in front of the camera.
