About Cynthia

I’m originally from Silver Spring, Maryland and I’m first generation American. Both my parents are from Ghana, and if you ask my mom she’ll tell you I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I don’t know if I believe her, but after a couple years of soul searching and studying business at Syracuse University, I finally came to that conclusion and dropped out of college à la Kanye West to travel to France, South Africa and Hawaii. Upon my return to the States, I transferred to the Savannah College of Art and Design where I graduated with a BA in Dramatic Writing. Since graduation, I’ve been working my way up in the TV writing world. I first worked as a writer’s assistant on MTV's Sweet/Vicious. I then had a great experience as a staff writer on an upcoming YouTube Red show, Me and My Grandma, starring Rhea Perlman and Eva Gutowski. I love shows like Orange Is The New Black, Atlanta and Mozart in the Jungle. I look forward to a long career in the TV industry and to eventually becoming a showrunner on my own show.
