NASYA JENKINS / Videographer
My name is Nasya Jenkins and visual media is my passion. I have been active in photography since 2016. I got my start in my high school’s yearbook committee. Later, I attended Temple University’s Tyler School of Art for Visual Studies, but by my second semester of my freshmen year I changed my Major to Media Studies and Production. This is where I found my love for storytelling. Story telling gave me a new interest and a way to look at art. Visual studies catered to my love of drawing but drawing wasn’t my passion. I have had a lot of ups and downs but I have not let that stop me from Writing and directing 3 short films and a YouTube series. Upon disproving my love for visual media I have delved into Graphic Design, media editing, and social media coordinating. Art has saved my life and I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world.
