Tasnia is a Project Coordinator on the CareerWise New York Team. Within this role, she contributes to the development and completion of school partnerships and apprenticeship recruitment projects. During her three-year apprenticeship, Tasnia will complete her high school education at Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, where she is currently in the 12th grade and enjoys Science and History.
Prior to her role at CareerWise New York, Tasnia worked at Educational Video Center, where she handled interviews and video edits. Before this, Tasnia worked at Rocking the Boat, a youth development organization that teaches boatbuilding, sailing, and environmental science in the South Bronx. Here, Tasnia was responsible for steering the boat and supporting navigation. Before this, Tasnia participated in the NYU Excel program (an SYEP experience), where she developed global warming research with a focus on root problems and potential solutions.
Tasnia hopes the professional experience gained from her apprenticeship will move her toward a career in IT, medicare, or another career where she can nourish her passion for helping people.
