In this second of our series done by our HOT97 Nessa show interns, we interview the unstoppable Ms. Patricia Robinson of Emmis Communications and The Know Your Rights Camp.
Ms Pat, as she is affectionately known, is proof positive that superheroes don’t always wear capes — sometimes they sport 6-inch stiletto heels and leopard print!
Patricia Robinson is a trailblazing leader who is highly recognized for her contributions in the media industry, community and social activism engagement.
We are so proud of LESGC member Zipporah Najar for taking the lead on an informative interview on career, community and making those difficult life decisions.
WGRL (Where Girl Radio Lives) is our all girl-powered online radio station and podcast series based out of The Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York, in NYC. Trained in the art of radio journalism and engineering by professionals in the field, led by Kelly Webb of the Sweet Spot and Jeannie Hopper of Liquid Sound Lounge and WBAI, our young reporters cover a wide variety of stories. WGRL produces regular podcasts and interviews with celebrities, community activists, musicians, politicians, fashionistas and powerful women in just about every walk of life. We’ve covered events as varied as the Halloween Dog Parade at Tompkins Square Park, National Record Store Day and the Women’s Herstory event at New York City Hall.
Our goal in the WGRL studio is to tell our stories through the skills and mediums we are gaining proficiency in and in turn share these stories with the world!
