When last we encountered New York Film Academy (NYFA) Broadcast Journalism grad Bryanna “Red Carpet” Reynolds, she was quitting a paying job in Australia to follow her dream to Los Angeles. And while she has only been there a matter of months, she seems to have settled in very well! But her big break came on a “black carpet.”

Another alum who is doing well, this time in New York, is Nicole Abebe. Nicole is back from Lagos, and getting some NYC media experience. She writes, “I’m a commerce reporter at the Daily Mail. So I write articles on fashion, beauty and lifestyle products.”

International students who complete the 1-Year Broadcast Journalism conservatory are eligible to remain and work in the United States for one year, in order to receive Optional Practical Training (OPT).

 

Sometimes it takes a while for news to make its way from Tokyo to New York. So I just learned about a NYFA alumni event that took place in Japan a little while ago. Ryo Matsuo was there to represent the Broadcast Journalism department. (That’s him on the right, in the picture below.) Ryo is a busy multimedia journalist in Tokyo, putting into practice the skills he learned at NYFA.

And speaking of graduates, congratulations to the September 2019 4-Week Broadcast Journalism students. Here they are on Graduation Day. I will leave it up to you to pick out the two faculty members in the picture. Here’s a hint…Daniel Hernandez and Fabiola Torres.


Finally, I am not a NYFA grad. I have been at the school for 6+ years, and I still don’t have a certificate. (Obviously I am not applying myself…) However, I know enough to be heading back to Kazakhstan in early December to co-teach a 1-Week Journalism workshop sponsored by the US State Department. (I was there at a conference in April.) 

Given that I don’t speak either Kazakh or Russian (the second national language), I am going to be relying a lot on NYFA faculty member Evgenia Vlasova. As all of our grads know, Genia’s Russian language skills are flawless!
