MTV Casting Notice (looking for Ivy League Latinas)

Dear Comadres...together we can make a difference! You go Linda Nieves-Powell! What a great role model...make change! Con carino, Nora

Last spring I was involved in an MTV protest to ban an episode of TRUE LIFE: I'm a NUYORICAN. It was the most demoralizing thing I had ever witnessed and I went on a mission to spread the word about it. Here is an article published by the NY Daily News: .....MTV's 'I'm a Nuyorican' not getting El Barrio love. MTV responded to this outcry. I was then invited to attend the MTV board meeting with the President and Vice President of programming along with The Hispanic Media Coalition. They immediately took the episode off the air and also promised that there would be an attempt to create a more positive True Life special on Puerto Ricans. Well, they stuck to their word and here is a casting call...

MTV is looking to profile the lives of young women of Puerto Rican descent currently enrolled as undergraduates at an Ivy League school (Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth Penn or Columbia) that have an amazing and captivating story.

SEEKING: FEMALES (16+; Puerto Rican) - STUDENTS of Ivy League School; Must be of Puerto Rican descent. latinacasting@
