Soledad O'Brien on being a journalist



I had the wonderful opportunity to listen to and meet one of the most powerful women in media – Soledad O’Brien.

 

O’Brien started off her speech at Texas State by introducing herself as a person, not a journalist. It was amazing how relatable she is and how normal she is. She told us she was born to a black, Cuban mother and a white, Australian father who went against segregation laws and got married in Washington D.C. (They lived in Maryland.)

 

The story…

Interesting organization - NAHJ

During my first semester at Texas State, I felt pretty lost to the whole college experience. First of all, I was living away from home, didn't really know anybody, and I was experiencing some really bad culture shock. In a way it was good because it was a learning experience, and new things are always good (except for a few things.) My first semester pretty much served as an adjusting period, then my second semester is when things finally started taking place. I think what helped me adjust the… Continue

A Blog About Blogging!

About a few months ago, I had the chance to attend a workshop with journalist, Charlotte Lucas who spoke about the future of online journalism, aka, blogging. Lucas is a blogger/journalist for NowCast SA, a hyperlocal blog aimed at lower-income families in the San Antonio area. She said the website is as low-maintenance as possible (meaning no fancy Flash or anything of the sort) so that low-income families who cannot afford internet at home can view the website from their cell phones through… Continue

Latina Living

Apart from being a DJ on the campus radio station, I also had the privilege to part of a new television show on campus called Latina Living. The show's demographic is of course, latina/hispanic women, a very under-served (had to put the hyphen, otherwise, it would've looked like "undeserved" :P) group as you may already know. Anyway, the show is pretty interesting - its got a talk show format, along with news packages, kind of like Despierta America. We covered themes from healthcare to gossip… Continue

DJ Chica! :p

This past semester I had the wonderful opportunity of DJ'ing (yes, its a verb in my book) on Texas State University's radio station, KTSW 89.9. It was part of my Audio Production class, and actually counted for a grade, so I wasn't too sure about whether or not it was going to be fun. At first, it was pretty overwhelming, but once I got the hang of it, I loved it! When you're simply a listener, you probably think that being a DJ is a pretty easy job, however, there's a lot that goes on, on the… Continue

Latina or Hispanic?

Depending on where you live, you may or may not have been faced with the question, "Am I Latina or Hispanic?"

It wasn't until I started college that I wondered this myself. Coming from a predominantly hispanic (or latino, whatever you prefer) neighborhood, I never really cared or thought about it. However, when I got to college, there were always discussions about what is more politically correct - hispanic or latino. The majority of the people I've encountered deem "hispanic" as offensive… Continue
