Zani Wilson

Hi everyone! My name is Zani (like Johnny, but with a Z). I’m from the beautiful suburbs of central Maryland. I’m currently a junior in the Tisch School of the Arts studying Film and Television and Psychology. Since I've been at NYU I've worked as an Admissions Ambassador, RA, and Welcome Week Leader. On the rare occasion that I’m not in class or working, you can find me on the 9th floor of Kimmel studying, in the Theatre District catching a Broadway show, or on MacDougal Street eating all of the amazing vegan treats Greenwich Village has to offer. I love meeting new people and exploring New York City, and I'm so grateful for the many opportunities NYU has offered me to do so.
