Today’s #WomanCrushWednesday is, student leader and Class of 2021 Valedictorian, Nicole Agu! Nicole Agu is an international student from Nigeria with a double major in Accounting and International Business, plus a minor in Finance. She loves to learn new things, explore different opportunities, volunteer, and make a positive difference in her community.

She is currently serving as CSI’s Student Government Club Commissioner and University Student Senate Delegate. She has held multiple leadership positions, but her top favorite experiences as a leader were working with the CSI student Government and the University Student Senate (USS) leaders to advocate for CUNY students.

During her time as Vice-chair for International Students at USS, she used her voice to create awareness of the struggles that international students face in CUNY and fought to mitigate those challenges with the support of other student leaders.

She is also very excited to be graduating in a few weeks as the valedictorian for the class of 2021 at CSI.

After graduation, she is looking forward to beginning a full-time career as an Audit Associate at one of the Big 4 accounting firms and pursuing her Certified Public Accounting license. She intends to always give back to her college community and continue to fight for a better investment in higher education. In her spare time, she loves watching anime, movies/series, documentaries, listening to her music playlist, visiting the gym, and hanging out with friends.

Today’s WSIA #ThrowbackThursday comes to us from Lauren Silverman, about an event many students loved in the Fall of 2019, our volleyball event!

“I wasn’t supposed to attend the WSIA volleyball event because I had class that afternoon. I remember being disappointed because I’d been so excited to engage with my fellow classmates and expand the station’s membership through this event.

“I soon found out, however, that my class had been cancelled—I never rushed back to 1C so fast. To my delight, I found a large group of students participating in an informal game with some of my fellow station members. We’d also set up a table with WSIA promo items and membership forms.

“I absolutely love when students get involved on campus, and since I’ve gone to some poorly-attended events in the past, I was thrilled with our turnout. Even students on the way to class would come over just to give the ball a quick serve or inquire about the station. I’m proud to belong to an organization that prioritizes outreach and involvement. The volleyball event is certainly one of my fondest WSIA memories!

Most pandemic-related capacity restrictions in New York and New Jersey will be lifted beginning May 19, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday. The plan employs the same regionally coordinated spirit the two neighboring governors deployed when they first shut down their states more than 13 months ago.

Our #SundaySpotlight comes from local artist Svndwn!

Svndwn (pronounced "sundown") is a solo musician from Staten Island, New York. Svndwn started making music in early 2017 under the name “Anthony Svn,'' which he then changed to Svndwn in late 2019. Before releasing his latest track “Tight Jeans,” he primarily made songs that were in the hip-hop, lo-fi, and trap metal genres. In his solo career, his biggest influences have been Raleigh Ritchie, Denzel Curry, and Dominic Fike. In his upcoming tracks, he plans to go back to his roots and embrace grunge, pop punk, and rock. You can hear his single “Tight Jeans” right here on WSIA.

US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan has begun, officials tell CNN

US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan has begun, officials tell CNN. The Pentagon has said it is concerned about personnel coming under attack from the Taliban as they depart so it's not clear if it will disclose all the details of the departure process, which is due to be completed by September 11.

The US military withdrawal from Afghanistan is now formally underway, according to several US defense officials. Fewer than 100 troops, along with military equipment, have been moved largely by aircraft to execute President Joe Biden's order to begin the withdrawal process no later than May 1.

Today’s WSIA #ThrowbackThursday comes to us from Derek Huang and Seamus Hughes. In 2019, Derek and Seamus covered the WorldPride Ceremonies for the radio station, including the opening ceremony, the rally on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, and the Pride March. Here’s what Derek had to say:

“The 2019 WorldPride event was perhaps one of the most fun and joyous celebrations that I have ever had the honor to be a part of. It was an honor to have WorldPride in New York City, a city that I not only grew up in but strongly identify with as part of my overall personality. The opening ceremony was something I will never forget. Having performing artists such as Billy Porter, Ciara, and Todrick Hall was amazing.

The observation of the start of the Stonewall riots on June 28 allowed me to remember those who came before me. It was special as well since the year 2019 also marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots of 1969. Lastly, the pride parade for that year was perhaps the most crowded I have ever seen. It felt as if there were millions of people all there to celebrate this one event. It was crazy, to say the least; my time during 2019’s WorldPride would be something I wouldn’t forget for the foreseeable future.”

For Seamus, it was an experience that he can both check off his bucket list and use to further his career:

“I am so happy that, as a member of WSIA and part of the LGBTQ community, I was able to cover something as revolutionary as WorldPride in New York City. The cool part about the opening ceremony was, we were sharing the Rainbow carpet with major news organizations! I was so happy to work for WSIA at that moment because I would not have gotten the experience I did!!! I still have some confetti from when the march started!”

Today’s #SundaySpotlight is another local favorite, Tombstoner.

Two sets of brothers from Staten Island, New York formed TOMBSTONER in March of 2019. Expertly combining a unique blend of styles, TOMBSTONER incorporates old school death metal, grindcore, thrash, hardcore, and brutal slam into one deadly cocktail—effectively evolving the death metal genre into the new decade.

Amid the death metal bellows, you'll find JR Hayes (Pig Destroyer) or John Randall (Agoraphobic Nosebleed)-like screams that sit alongside either Power Trip or Gatecreeper-inspired riffage.

Tombstoner’s debut EP was released in 2020 and can be heard on WSIA. For more information on the band, you can follow them @tombstoner_official or find them on Spotify.

Today’s WSIA #ThrowbackThursday comes from former Programming Director Karla Gutierrez who shared her love of the station, here’s what she said,

"For me, WSIA was a home away from home. As a person who commuted to CSI from Brooklyn, I practically lived on campus. In between the classes, overwhelming workload, and anxiety, WSIA was an escape, a place where surrounding myself with shelves of LPs and CDs and reviewing music to go on air brought me peace to get through the day. The station helped me realize that even on the toughest days, it’s the small things that count—like each morning spending a calm moment drinking tea and having breakfast there with my friends.

“A couple of events that stand out in my memory are our yearly Thanksgiving potluck and being live on air. It really is so hard to narrow down what I love the most.
Having been a member since fall of 2014, I’ve met some amazing people and made friends who I consider family. I’ve found some of my favorite artists, like @BØRNSmusic and @MiamiHorror.

“Through my work there, I have come to realize that I can manage a fully-functioning radio station while taking midterms and finals. I’m capable of handling a lot more than I ever gave myself merit for. I credit the station with helping me gain the confidence I needed to step out of my comfort zone, and for that, I’m grateful and look back at my time at WSIA fondly."
