Description

Latinx On The Rise is a podcast focusing on conversations with high achieving Latinx movers and shakers. Under the current political climate, the Latinx community continue to be relegated by being told what and who they are with little space to share perspective of our own stories. From queer identity to Afro-Latinidad we are constantly reminded there is little room for our stories to reach the masses. Latinx On The Rise has changed that landscape with representation of all kinds of Latinx- Americans across the country who are excited to share their achievements and hope to inspire listeners.

Family separations at the border have completely rocked many to their core. Carolina and I talk about what is going on at the border as of now and she helps clarify some misconceptions. She, as well as other volunteers are heading down to Dilley, Texas to provide legal services to detainees. Currently, she has a GoFundMe open to help finance some of the women who will be volunteering at the border.  A little about Carolina: Carolina Rubio-MacWright was born in Bogota, Colombia, where she lived until at age 20, when finding a safer place to call home was necessary. Two years after moving to Miami, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida International University with a Bachelor of Fine Art in studio art. After graduation, she felt the need to understand the American legal system, at which point she moved to Oklahoma City, where she received her Juris Doctorate Degree. She has worked as an immigration attorney in Oklahoma, Miami and New York City.  Her experience as an attorney working on criminal law, civil rights and immigration law opened her eyes to the realities of the broken American legal system.  She believes that art is often the most powerful way of explaining life, which is why she is so passionate about finding innovative ways to bring communities together; from doing campaign work for non-profits to performing public art pieces to developing programs to empower vulnerably communities. She believes anything is possible when inspiring ideas and passionate people come together.     She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
