Name: Sekinat Jumai Yusuf
Recipient Year: 2018
Description: Jumai graduated from Harvard College in May 2016 with a B.A in Neurobiology, yet to the surprise of everyone decided to pursue a career in Film and TV. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Film & TV Production at the University of Southern California. As a Director, she hopes to combine her love of science and art through film. She is drawn to genre filmmaking (sci-fi, fantasy, horror), and since she is a Muslim, Nigerian immigrant, she always strives to bring the stories and characters of underrepresented minorities to the screen. UPDATE In August I will be starting an MFA in Film & TV Production at the University of Southern California.
