Meet the Guideline Media Residents.
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.

On a great day, you can find him exploring the world and capturing images of the people, places, things, and events that spark his interest the most on his Fujifilm camera. Julian has been doing photography for three years now but 2020 is the first year he decided to take it seriously and pursue it as a career. Although it has been a wavering experience so far, Julian continues to commit to the grind and improve at the craft.
Additionally, Julian discovered his passion for journalism. He enjoys hearing and sharing stories with others. During his free time, Julian can be found discussing hip-hop music, sports, fashion, and social issues that affect our daily lives.
