I was born in Astoria, Queens and then moved to the Jamaica section at age 4. I love movies. My favorite movie genres are sci-fi, psychology thrillers and mysteries. I usually try to see independent films. I was a Youth Organizer with the Forest Hills Community House (FHCH) for 2.5 years. A Youth Organizer is a young person who cares about and has a strong desire to achieve a positive force in the community. During that time I was involved in the production of a social action documentary and several public service announcements. It is through FHCH that I found out about South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!) where I worked also on producing a short film.
I'm going to pursue film/media studies at Hunter College. I know working with Radio Rookies is going to help me in my future plans.
Interesting Fact: My middle finger was accidentally severed when I was a kid (it was successfully reattached). I don't like to wear logos.
