About Korinah

I graduated from The American University of Paris, with a B.A. in Global Communications & Production. There , my videos were praised by UNESCO & Faculty members of the University. While in high school I worked as a babysitter and tutor for struggling elementary and junior high school students. In her last year at university I was hired to teach English to young students in Paris by a company called "Speaking Agency".

Currently I am studying for my Masters degree in Global Communications with a Visual & Material culture track and making plans to secure a production internship or job to enter the entertainment field.

I was a member of the National Honor Society in high school, the year I graduated early and continued on to get accepted to Phi Theta Kappa (a two-year college honor society). I enjoy photography and video editing in my free time. I took on the role of Executive Producer of my University's video media channel and helped students create content that not only they were proud of, but the school could be too.

One of my favorite parts of being Executive Producer was helping students who had no prior experience in editing create works they didn't think they could, by giving them the tools and knowledge they needed to execute their visions. This taught me to be very patient and encouraging with the students I helped in my approach to teaching.

I believe that with great dedication comes great reward. The desire to learn or better a skill, met with diligence and patience allows students to achieve their goals.

Reading and Writing were my first loves. I wrote for my high school newspaper and later acquired an editor position for the Fashion section. My passion for writing further developed in college through the help of courses like Advanced Expository Writing and The Art of Screenwriting. I was later accepted into a Creative Writing masters program after submission of my first feature film outline and sample.

Working as a Production Assistant in a small successful company is very rewarding. In four short months and intense hands-on experiences, I was able to obtain a base in video production. I was later able to build on this through coursework at my university and a mentorship with a film professional with reputable credentials.

Photography

I have been doing photography since I joined the school paper during my sophomore year of high school. Since then, I have taken two photography courses in university and continued to expand my knowledge and abilities in this art form. I gained my passion for film through my love of photography.
