What They’re Doing: Valentina Pereda

Wondering about Valentina Pereda (alumni ’01, ’02 and ’04)? ┬áHere’s what she has to say:

“I’ve gone a completely different direction from performing arts, although music will always be a part of my life. I do Latino outreach at the Democratic National Committee. Right now, we’re working with the Obama campaign to create and execute a strategy that will attract and engage Latino voters. As an emerging population, the Latino vote will be a decisive factor for this campaign and many more to come. One of the components of our strategy is getting celebrities like Eva Longoria, John Lenguizamo, etc. to use social media outlets (facebook, twitter) and write about issues that affect the Latino community/ encourage them to register to vote.”
