Jennifer Zarzuela

Jennifer Zarzuela has found the perfect situation for her in the Electronic Media Communications major. “I love everything I’m learning about and everything the industry offers, whether I’m working in front of the camera or behind the camera.”

Zarzuela  graduated from Arturo A. Schomburg Satellite Academy in the Bronx in 2012, started college, then took a year off school before winding up at OCC. Since arriving she has blossomed as a student. She was inducted into international honor society Phi Theta Kappa and this year is the organization’s Vice President for Public Relations. “Last year I met Alena Cerro who held this position. She helped me with classes and now she’s gone on to a good school (New York University). I really love everything the organization stands for.”

Zarzuela plans to transfer to a college in California and take advantage of opportunities on the west coast. “My dream is directing and producing. I’d love to make films, music video and television shows.”
