My bio: Veralyn Williams has a B.A. in Media Studies from Hunter College, and is currently a Multimedia Freelance Journalist working in New York City. She has spent 4 years at WNYC Radio working with various departments including: Radio Rookies, Culture, News, and Freakonomincs. Also freelancing for Black Enterprise, BronxNet Television, Bedsider.org, SexReally.com, and The Museum for African Art. She is also Social Secretary and Co-Founder of Telem Center for the African Child, a nonprofit providing underserved children of African descent an opportunity to celebrate their cultural heritage.

Through all of her endeavors she aims to give a voice to perspectives that are often forgotten in the media.
As a product of youth media, I can personally testify to how giving a young person the tools to tell their own stories— can empower them to take control in other areas of their lives. And I am very passionate about giving that same opportunity to as many students as possible.
This year I have independently planned and taught two separate Media Workshops, which I customized to the needs of the program.
What you get when you hire me? A dynamic, energetic, and take charge teacher, who can relate to teens— while also help and direct them to the finish line of their media projects.
While conducting a workshop I will:
- teach students the different elements to a story.
- teach students how to get started developing their story idea.
- train students to use video and audio equipment (Equipment not provided by me)
- teach students to conduct 1on1 interviews and on the street interviews.
- teach students to record sounds and/or B-Roll.
- teach students to write scripts for radio and/or video.
- train students to edit their work using best editing program to fit workshop’s need.
