About Alva-Amoin

November 2019
London, UK

Currently, I am a Video Producer/Journalist at AJ+ based in New York.   I earned an undergraduate degree from New York University, and also have a Master’s degree in Journalism with a concentration in International Multimedia Reporting from the City University of New York, Graduate School of Journalism.  See the speech I gave to my graduating CUNY J-school class in 2011 here.

My personal immigrant experience in the U.S. informs my journalism work, and creative projects.  I attended New York public schools while living as a French national and an undocumented elementary school student.  Born in Paris, I’m a dual national of France and now, the U.S. with professional experience in translation, broadcasting, online marketing, documentary film, and education spanning France, South Korea and the U.S. 

My journalism work has appeared in news outlets like BBC Reel, The Associated Press, BuzzFeed News, Reuters.com, WNYC, CISAC News (France), NewsGuard Tech, ARTE (France), Gwangju News (South Korea), The Christian Science Monitor, GFN-Radio (South Korea), WSJ.com and Meet the Press on NBC News.
