Luigi Velasco's infectious smile already says that he's the type you can instantly click with after a few conversations, which makes sense because he's outgoing and loves connecting with everyone around him.

One of the things Luigi is most passionate about matches his personality-hosting. "It all started when my cousin requested I host her 18th debut celebration as a birthday gift," Luigi shares. "The idea of taking the stage while having your voice amplified in front of family, friends, and my cousin's batchmates for the first time was definitely something." For Luigi, the fact that hosting requires the perfect mix of humor, intelligence, and a dash of confidence thrills him.
