Hello! My name is Vivica Michel. I’m a third-year journalism student at Stony Brook University. I was born and raised in Bronx, NY. Many people constantly assume I’m Hispanic, but I am half African American and half Asian. I’m a city girl through and through. I love NYC and everything that it has to offer. I’m also very passionate about anything that involves my family, music and food.
Some of the things that I’m involved with on-campus is Student Media, WUSB 90.1fm, Black World Media, The Odyssey Online and Society of Professional Journalists. I’m hoping to grow as a writer and expand my skills in digital media. I hope to use journalism someday to give voices to those who feel as they aren’t being heard.
