Writer/Director/Producer Educational Media for the Latina/o CommUnity * Create Educational Events for Latina Students
Communicating / Sharing Stories
Day to Day
Meeting people. Researching what's being done and needs to be done. Communicating what you need to others. Attend as many events in entertainment to learn what others are doing and may need from you. Writing, following up on projects and/or pitching new ones. Creating panels and programs that others are not doing (nor have done in the past) in order to facilitate what diverse women may need or want to pursue their own stories and personal desires, dreams, and destinies. Rewrite & ReImage.
Skills & Qualities Beyond School
Listen and observe as to what's being talked about and what's actually being walked. Read about women archaeologists who are finding out new information which was never told about women from all continents. Promote and invite diverse women to share their stories from their own lives, their mother's life and their grandmother's life to gain an accurate telling of what is and what others around you "tell you what is". It's up to us to be the true pioneers in our age of discovery and evolution.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for everyone
Internships. Helping out on other people's projects. Go for temporary positions, so you can move in & out fluidly w/o hard expectations from employers who want you to stay with them too long. I, of course, after winning a writing competition at Universal (first woman chosen in 10yrs) - started my own company & was the 1st Latina to produce a US synd.program by/about Latina/os. Don't Take "no" As The Answer. Be a Bridger, Enter All Closed Doors. With Your Will, There Will Always Be a Way!
