The word, Lucesco [pronounced loo-kes-ko], is rooted in the Latin language and means dawn or light. I took four years of Latin in high school and thought it would be cool to have a word of significance in multiple languages. Because Latin is one of the first known, spoken languages, it is likely that the word holds similar meaning across other languages and cultures.
The Lucesco is a blog for people, of diverse backgrounds and perspectives, looking to create more options for themselves and their communities. And by options, I mean increasing economic empowerment through money, additional schooling, and acting as change agents within communities. I hope that people will use The Lucesco to build financial literacy, develop action plans, think critically about recent events, and participate in the discussion.
