Look who’s still here! Syeda is a Gotham Intern going 3rd term strong! In her first, she worked on her first Spec Script, and found the courage to pursue this whole TV Writing thing full steam. The 2nd picked up with a pilot pursuit, one that she’s still wrestling with and enjoying all the time. A graduate of Brandeis University with a BA in Creative Writing and Psychology, plus one poetry thesis: Tales of Violent Sunshine. While wading through post-grad uncertainty, she dove into the tumultuous world of the entertainment industry and now freelances as a Script Supervisor; which turns out to be the most complicated job on set, but also her favorite (though Wardrobe is a close 2nd). She finds herself staying at Gotham to play intern “mother hen” and soak up every bit of Gotham-ness possible. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, dance, exploring events, reading consecutively, and obsessively watching and over-critiquing cartoons.
