How the Grammys Changed My Life: Becoming An Op Ed Columnist
In this essay, I write about my process of becoming an op ed columnist for a newspaper in Hartford, Connecticut, called The Hartford Courant, the longest continuously published newspaper in the United States. I share some of my experiences as an op ed columnist, along with examples of columns I have written. The examples demonstrate how I introduce my politics as a Latina and a feminist to a mainstream audience, and by doing so, writing becomes a form of activism, a call to action and an educational tool to enlighten my audience about a given subject.
