2023 Undergraduate Convocation Student Speaker

Wanda Bryce

Wanda Bryce is graduating with the B.A. in Social Sciences from the Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies. As a fledgling screenwriter, she aspires to write and produce original feature-length films and television shows that tell stories with a global appeal and cultural significance to the Caribbean, which she calls home.

Wanda’s professional ambitions are inspired by the intersectionality of her identity as a Black Jamaican-immigrant woman that allow autonomy and agency in developing projects that speak to the issues of the Black diaspora. She aims to do multi-disciplinary work that cultivates community and creates pathways for inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and accessibility in the artistic and creative industries.

She is a proud Alpha Sigma Lambda, NAACP, New York Urban League, NYU Student Multifaith Advisory Council member, and NYU Changemaker Center Social Impact grant recipient.

Wanda has collaborated with Angela Rye, social justice advocate and media personality, on projects for ESPN and the NBA. She also consulted with Second Stage Theater for the Broadway residencies of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Between Riverside and Crazy, and the critically acclaimed, The Thanksgiving Play.

When she isn’t working on a screenplay or media project, Wanda enjoys reading biographies, globetrotting, visiting museums, watching basketball, and attending film screenings.
