To put it simply: Zinhle Essamuah is a storyteller.
You can find Zinhle chasing stories in Washington D.C. as a Producer at NowThis. She holds a Master’s in Media and Strategic Communication and a certification in Documentary Filmmaking from The George Washington University.
Through SimplyZinhle Productions, LLC Zinhle works as a multimedia shooter, producer and editor. She has directed two documentary films: the award-winning documentary, Hands Up, which chronicles the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and, most recently, she completed the original documentary, The Minority Vote, which follows minority, millennial voters during the 2016 Presidential Election.
Zinhle has a special interest domestic and international conflict reporting. Some of her greatest joys come from traveling and sharing stories. In her free time, she explores farmer’s markets, reads (and writes in the margins), laughs and travels.
And, well, that’s — simply, Zinhle.
