Posted by Carolyn Bernardo on Thursday, June 7, 2018

In our “Life After Bing” series, we bring you quick interviews with alumni who are leaders in their fields, trail-blazers. Find out how these alums got to be where they are now, and how Binghamton shaped their lives.

Our featured alum is Steven Canals '05, MA '08 screenwriter and executive producer of FX's Pose. "Pose has made history as the first network television show to feature multiple transgender women as series regulars. But the existence of the production — which centers on the ball culture of 1980s New York — had a long and uncertain journey to Hollywood, as did Canals himself." Growing up in the Bronx, Steven experienced extreme violence, and addiction surrounded him. His solace? Film and television. Steven's solace became a passion and is now his career. Read more about Steven's journey and his advice to students looking to break into the film industry.

Posted by Carolyn Bernardo on Tuesday, May 29, 2018

In our “Life After Bing” series, we bring you quick interviews with alumni who are leaders in their fields, trail-blazers. Find out how these alums got to be where they are now, and how Binghamton shaped their lives.

Our featured alumna is Jessica Stanis, MSW/MPA ’15, director of the Binghamton Rescue Mission. A first-generation college student with parents who immigrated to America from Trinidad, Jessica worked hard to earn her master's degrees and obtain a job right out of graduate school with the College of Community and Public Affairs (CCPA). Two years after graduating, Jessica spotted her dream job listed online, one that she saw herself taking in about ten years time. Filled with apprehension, excitement and “what-ifs,” Jessica faced her fears and obtained the job eight years ahead of the game!
