Music Festivals and the Latin boom!

21Sep

Brandy Martinez and I talk about her adventures in music work. She is a live music engineer and events planner. This was such a fund conversation for me because Brandy is my friend and we rarely talk about our work trajectory. We talk about the new latin boom in music. I hope you enjoy it!

You’re accepted! What’s next after being accepted into college

14Sep

Jazmin Peralta is the Assistant Director of Special Projects for Equity and Inclus, Visiting InstructorVP for Student Affairs, Humanities & Media Studies for Pratt Institute. We talked about the best ways to support underserved students who are entering college. 

The opportunity for higher education is more attainable than ever, however, some of us need more assistance. Many first generation and underserved students drop out because of the lack of guidance during college.

Jazmin and I talked about Pratt Institute’s approach to solve this issue, as well as, what students can be doing to continue their education.

Anne Frank reaches through time to embrace undocumented people under trump era.

7Sep

Many of us know the story of Anne Frank very well. However, there is a generation that is missing out on her teenage angst, powerful words and affect on a time in history we should never forget. I spoke with Producer, Writer and Director, Stan Zimmerman, Actors Tasha Dixon, Genesis Ochoa and David Gurrola. Zimmerman was watching a CNN report on a Jewish woman who was so affected by what was going on, in regards to deportations, she took it upon herself to help undocumented peoples go into hiding. 

The feeling of fear and bravery that live inside Anne Frank are feelings shared by undocumented peoples, as well as, those like myself who have family memebers affected by this. It is also a reminder that each time we say, "it's not anything like the Holocust," it's because we cannot let it get that far.
