TRIP is a tight-knit group of high school Latinas trained in the fundamentals of journalistic writing and multi-media production. They have done some outstanding things – some things their adult counterparts in media have yet to achieve - including having a national byline in Latinitas’ magazines, interviews with Latino elite such as best-selling author Sandra Cisneros, international music stars Los Lonely boys and playwright and filmmaker Luis Valdez, best-known for authoring Zoot Suit, a historical account of “Latinidad” in the 40s and 50s and La Bamba, Chicano singer Ritchie Valens’ biopic.
In 2010-2011, TRIP launches again with lessons in writing, photography, video and radio, field trips and coverage of Austin-centric events such as ACL fest. Any female teen in grades 9-12 are welcome to come to bi-weekly meetings. Email latinitasTRIP2010@gmail.com for an application and directions.
