Happy Friday Fam! I am so excited to bring you a fun interview today! I talked to Alexander Rodriguez the host of the radio show On The Rocks and new LATV show called Glitterbomb! His new show is the first Latinx LGBTQ talk show and as he refers to it, it is the gay view. We talk about coming out in the Latinx community and the challenges that can come with that. Alexander shares a touching story about the first time his grandma saw him in a pride parade. This episode was such a pleasure to record I really hope you all enjoy it!

*Trigger warning*

THIS PODCAST COVERS SEXUAL ASSAULT AND ITS IMPACTS PLEASE BE ADVISED 

The #metoo movement has been fast moving since last year. Recently, while watching Dr. Christine Blasey Ford give her testimony about her experience with sexual assault I felt the need to reach out to Adriana Alejandra Alejandre, the host and producer to Latinx Therapy as well as, a licensed marriage and family therapist practicing at Counseling and Trauma Therapy. 

I wanted to dig a little deeper on what happens to us mentally after we experience sexual assault. I share some personal stories that were difficult to share but I am committed to being open with my audience. I hope you enjoy and if you have any questions please reach out and let me know.

Ray Arroyo and I met many moons ago, while working at a community center together. We both taught English to adults in a Latinx neighborhood. Community work, whether in the Latinx community or in your neighborhood is important now more than ever. It's important to remember that when we see a changing world and we must take the best parts of ourselves and put them to work. 

Haters in the Community and getting that raise at work!

Alexis Tirado, the Head of Pero Like, joined me in a conversation about haters in the Latinx community and how to be a good leader. We also discussed how to ask for raises! Also, self correction on Latinx having 7 Trillion spending power. We actually had 1.7 Trillion in spending power in 2017 and US Latinx are the 7th largest economy. I got my facts twisted! Also Latina women get paid in a range of 42 to 81 cents on the dollar, depending on the state. Enough with those (awesome) numbers!

“How do we support you to stay in college”

Jazmin.jpg

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.
