Chicago is the best city.
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!
“How do we support you to stay in college”
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.
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.

"If someone says Guru, I answer to it."
Mendoza said as we talked about the beginnings of her business.
Leslie Mendoza, better known as the Brow Guru took her talents of beauty and fortified them into a business. She owns Prime Boudoir a eyebrow and eyelash salon in Whittier and Granada Hills.
We talked about finding your passion and developing it into a business that works for you. She is truly inspiring in her work and goes to show how unstoppable a dream can be.
She was gracious enough to offer us 20 percent off her online products and $5 off her stain in salon. All by using the Latinx code.

"How are you important to yourself?"
Is a question Leah asked herself before she started Brujita Skincare. I think it is an amazing question to ask yourself.
My interview with Leah Guerrero, founder and owner of Brujita skin care was nothing short of magical. We talked about her beginnings in skin care and how her company started. During the interview she said something so poignant and I tempt you to ask yourself the same question. How are you important to yourself?
