Education & Backstory

Aliya holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin, and and a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia University. Additionally, she hold certificates from San Diego City College’s Graphic Design and Radio Television Film programs.

Her career in media started after she suddenly lost her healthcare sales job. She had trouble finding another job, and decided to go back to school to study two things she was always passionate about – design & broadcast journalism. She enrolled at San Diego City College thinking she would pick the program she liked the best. However, she loved both programs so much she ended up completing both degrees. As she studied design and media, she began to see how much they were interrealted.
