You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch, your host. I have Jeannette Kaplun on the show today. I feel like Jeannette needs no introduction. But, just in case you don’t know who she is, Jeannette is an award-winning bilingual journalist, spokesperson, TV personality and internationally recognized parenting writer, with over 20 years of experience on TV, radio, and online media. She has achieved what few have done: seamlessy navigate between general and Hispanic market television shows, including Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The Steve Harvey Show, The Chew, Today Show, Despierta América, Un Nuevo Día, El News Café, Acceso Total, Viva la Familia, and Todobebé. I mean you name it, she’s been there.
Jeannette began blogging about her pregnancy and motherhood in the early 2000’s, which makes her a true pioneer in the Latino/Hispanic blogging world and she’s been recognized numerous times as one of the leading Latina bloggers in the US and media influencers. You know what it’s like when you meet someone really big and you hope they’re as delightful as you imagine them to be? Well, Jeanette is all that, and then some. And of course, she’s another Jewish Latin Princess! Given the latest announcement from Disney to launch their Jewish Latin Princess character very soon, close to Hanukah time, well… we had to talk and have fun with this. Jeanette and I talk about her work, motherhood, multicultural life, Judaism, of course… And, if you’re one of those women who tends to have many passions and embark on many projects, I think you’ll find this conversation very refreshing and relevant. Here’s the lovely Jeannette Kaplun.
