Sanda Htyte is associate producer at Radio Rookies, a New York Public Radio initiative that provides teenagers with the tools and training to create radio stories about themselves, their communities and their world. She has been with Radio Rookies since interning with the program in summer of 2005.
Htyte's own experience as a youth in an after-school theater program gave her the insight to know the importance of her producer/mentor role in Radio Rookies. She believes in how vital it is to be able to have a voice and for this voice to be heard — giving young people the opportunity to express themselves. While interning at Radio Rookies, Sanda was completing her MFA in documentary producing and from 2006 to 2007 she taught Introduction to Radio Production as an Adjunct Lecturer at her Alma Mater, Brooklyn College, CUNY. She was also a Youth Media Learning Network 2009 NYC Fellow. Before coming on board as Radio Rookies producer she worked as freelance video producer, director, editor and did a very short stint as assistant to director Julie Taymor, having the rare opportunity to video archive years of incredible art.
