On May 8th, NYFA’s Los Angeles campus saw 165 degree students graduate. A virtual  commencement ceremony was held for the graduating class of 2021 allowing students to collect their degrees and officially become NYFA alumni.

Commencement Speaker Camrus Johnson (Batwoman, The Sun is Also a Star) joined the graduation live and delivered an inspirational speech about how pursuing a career in the film industry is “risky, scary, can be frustrating, and how pursuing that dream makes a person not normal.  It makes them extraordinary.  That fighting for this goal, climbing for it, and falling down is worth it…as long as they pick themselves up and keep going.”  And how, in no time, these students will be the ones holding for and hearing an applause.

NYFA Los Angeles also introduced its third student speaker Emma Daniels (BFA Acting), who addressed peers on this milestone achievement. Students also were shown a graduation video that was streamed during the ceremony.
