Global Girls Hit the Airwaves on KPFK Radio!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of accompanying three of the eight global girls of Global Girl Media, a program “dedicated to empowering high school age girls from under-served communities through media, leadership and journalistic training to have a voice in the global media universe and their own futures,” to a radio interview at KPFK Radio in Los Angeles.

Their blog accounts of yesterday’s experience on the radio follow below.

On Air With KPFK by Jessica Cueva

Yesterday, June 21, 2010 Brenda, Sussete, and myself took a trip to the KPFK Radio studios in North Hollywood. Professor Melanie Klein, who had kindly agreed to chaperone, and I got there first and we waited in the lobby for the two other girls to arrive. Once they got they got there the room suddenly seemed tiny. I think this is when my nerves started to hit.
