Short Intro.  Hello, I am Kathyluz Canela, I have an eye for detail, curious mind and soul, an animal lover, and a passion for exploring the world's history, culture and its people. I enjoy to write, stay active and network.  

Where Have I Been? I graduated, CUNY Brooklyn College, on May of 2015, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism. The distinct range of experiences I have possessed has challenge, yet expanded my career vision, purpose, and skills. My experience backgrounds range from reporting and producing newscasts for BBC News, directing academic enrichment and arts program for students in both preschool and Day Center,  administer for Jewish Home Hospital. I have dedicated my volunteering contributions to both local and abroad charities such as Hug It Forward, Nancy Liberman Charities, Boys & Girls Club.

 

Where Am I Now? At the moment, I am working on independent projects and launching my blog. Therefore, becoming an apprentice in a program that enhances students digital career through web analytics, Search Engine Optimization, Marketing etc. such as COOP, is a platform that I'm utilizing to gain more skills to further my career.   

Where Am I Going? Since, today's world is mostly being heard via media outlets, diving into the digital world understanding, implementing it, will be an upper hand for the goals going forward . In the near future, I seek to take the skills I've learned in journalism school, COOP program, and work, to connect people with innovators around the globe that have grown from the bottom up. Travel to thorough countries to give back to communities in need and share their stories. Ultimately, using my voice physically and through my writing.

Losing this weight taught me that I can accomplish a goal as long as I put my mind into it. I still live an active lifestyle.
