Ánimo Watts Students at USC’s Annenberg Youth Academy

Ánimo Watts sophomore, Enas Ibrahim was amongst 25 students selected to participate in the Annenberg Youth Academy for Media and Civic Engagement at USC this summer. The AYA is a three-week summer intensive academy for high school students from the communities surrounding the USC University Park and Health Science Campuses. Ibrahim was exposed to the equivalent of first-year college level courses, and develop a rich conceptual understanding and practice of the necessary role that media communications and journalism play in fashioning civic-minded thought leaders and innovators.


She had the opportunity to work with the scholars who are advancing issues of race, gender, and ethnicity in communication and journalism communities of practice.
