Tashanta Snyder was born in Queens, N.Y. and was the youngest of two children. Living in New York City she was exposed to a lot of different experiences. These experiences gave her an endless amount of subjects to write about. Her first exposure to media was through print journalism at John Bowne High School. She wrote for the high school newspaper entitled The Observer. It was her responsibility to write reviews about newly released movies, music videos and albums.

Out of high school she attended Kingsborough Community College for journalism and print media. There, she wrote news stories, art reviews, and all kinds of feature stories some of which included personal profiles. After Kingsborough, she enrolled in the Streetwise Partners job training program. There she learned how to use microsoft word, powerpoint and excel sufficiently. Fortunately, the Streetwise Partners program set her up with an internship at BrownStone Digital, an online news series. At this internship she was promoted several times. She started off as an intern, then was promoted to production coordinator. From there she was promoted to segment producer and then promoted to producer.

In March of 2006, she attended Queens College for media studies. There she specialized in interpersonal communication, creating and editing skits, film analyzation and media activism. And here she is today!
