Hey, I'm Jumai!

Ashland, Massachusetts

Jumai graduated from Harvard College in May 2016 with a B.A in Neurobiology, yet to the surprise of everyone decided to pursue a career in Film and TV. As a Director, she hopes to combine her love of science and art through film. She is drawn to genre filmmaking (sci-fi, fantasy, horror), and since she is a Muslim, Nigerian immigrant, she always strives to bring the stories and characters of underrepresented minorities to the screen.
