RCGS Ambassador: Aliya Jasmine
Aliya Jasmine is an award-winning television host, producer, and environmental journalist (M.A.) You can currently watch her on various platforms for NBC News in Los Angeles. She is also the co-founder of the environmentally focused media production and climate research lab, LILI Media & Design Lab.
She was previously anchor of MTV News in Canada, for over a decade, where she interviewed celebs including Tom Cruise, Kanye West, and Adele — and has worked for or had stories appear on NBC, MTV and the Discovery Channel. Among the many shows she helped develop at MTV Canada, MTV IMPACT was a show for millennials about social and environmental issues that sent her on assignment around the world, and set the path for her career: from South Sudan after a civil war, to the heart of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest to see first-hand the potential impacts of a proposed oil pipeline. She returned to the rainforest multiple times for various productions, and became one of the World Wildlife Fund’s “Canadians for the Great Bear.”
