Wise Latinas by Jennifer DeLeon

Hello BTU,

On February 28th,  I had the opportunity to visit the CBS studio in Allston where host Yadiris Salcedo interviewed me about the anthology I edited, Wise Latinas. In typical Latina fashion, I arrived with my mother, my father, and a student. Nakeisha Parilla, a seventh grader, who took notes in her writing journal the whole time. It was a spectacular morning. I decided to invite Nakeisha because she recently expressed interest in broadcast journalism after she acted as a reporter in a group presentation for our unit on Night by Elie Weisel.

The show airs Saturday mornings at 7:40 AM on Channel 4. It is in English with Spanish subtitles. The interview was aired on Saturday, March 1st.

From your colleagues Jenn:

Great job Jenn! You’re a natural! Wonderful interview! What an amazing accomplishment Jenn! Congratulations on your “baby”! Can’t wait to read your book!

Following the CBS interview, there was a publishing event well attended by BTU School scholars and faculty. Once again, congratulations Jenn! The BTU School community is very proud of you for this great accomplishment!
