Academy Student Featured on the TODAY Show

Academy of Art University’s School of Animation & Visual Effects student Niyjale Cummings along with Academy President Elisa Stephens was interviewed by NBC TODAY Show's Kristen Dahlgren on the program last week. Niyjale, or Ny as he is called by his friends, was the recipient of a Vernon Davis Visual Arts Scholarship, awarded by Davis of the San Francisco 49ers. “Niyjale is super talented, and he’ll go far if he pursues art for a living,” Davis said upon awarding Ny the scholarship. Not only did Davis recognize Ny’s talent, he also took note of the challenges Ny faced growing up. Ny has been very interested in art from an early age and said, “When you think about it, everything is a form of art in itself.”
