Sylvia Brookoff

Communication: Film and Media Arts

Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Sylvia Brookoff has taken advantage of everything DC has to offer. A film and media arts major with a marketing minor, Sylvia first learned about the power of storytelling as an intern in the Washington Post video department her sophomore year. There, she edited reporters' videos, helped live-stream Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and edited videos late into the night during the midterm election. In an effort to diversify her experiences and learn as much as possible about the various components of media, she’s interned at a range of companies including Comcast Sportsnet, the Travel Channel, Sunday Night Football, NBC Nightly News and the 2012 Olympics in London. Sylvia developed a particular interest in Children’s media after visiting Nickelodeon during the SOC New York trip her sophomore year and her interest continued to grow after taking Kathryn Montgomery’s Children, Media and Society class and interning at PBS KIDS and the KIDS department of National Geographic. In addition to interning, in her spare time, Sylvia enjoys seeing plays at the Shakespeare Theatre Company, playing tennis, eating a lot of Nutella crepes and collecting brightly colored sneakers..
