Jacky Priego (Massive thank you to Jacky, Gaby McCormick, Alice Losk & Rideback for making this happen)
Jacky Priego was studying aeronautical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne when she realized she wanted to change career paths. With the encouragement from her family Jacky got to work. With templates of scripts to use as guides, Priego created the first season of "PinkSlipped." The story of "Pinkslipped" centers around three best friends living in Chicago, all on the verge of losing their jobs at the same time. “It’s an authentic story about what it’s like to be a Latina currently in the workplace,” she says about the web series. “It’s a no-holds-barred story. It’s a love letter to all those women that are children of immigrants, and everything they sacrificed so that their daughters could fulfill their dreams. It’s a universal story for any marginalized community.” Jacky and other members of the "Pinkslipped" family will be at Thursday's screening!
