Why Study at NYIT?
Because NYIT offers many opportunities in the Department of Communication Arts. I also wanted to take advantage of my college experience by choosing a school that is bigger with a lot to offer as opposed to the small high school I attended.
Clubs and Organizations
I plan to join The Campus Slate because of my passion for writing. It will help me grow as a writer and learn more about Journalism.
Apply what I learn in the classroom to what my future career in media will be. I also want to make friends that last a lifetime.
The late film critic Roger Ebert. He always wrote movie reviews in his honest opinion and did not care about what others thought.
Favorite tech gadget
My Android phone because it has many apps that I rely on when needed.
Playing sports, video games, and hanging out with my friends. I also like to write little stories in my spare time and read dramatic books.
