Tielle Douglas “DJ Nexthursday”

For students like Tielle Douglas, this month marked the triumphant end to their college career. Douglas spent the spring semester interning at 102 JAMS and holding down a job while enrolled as a student, so she slowed down and decided to take an extra semester. The film and video production major at UNCG is a die-hard Steelers fan, was raised in the Caribbean and has lived all over the place. Douglas didn’t always know she wanted to work in film. “I kind of wanted to act but I have stage fright, so being behind the camera was the next best thing,” she said. “Music videos are the perfect mix for me. When I hear a song the video just pops into my head.” She plans to move to New York and was accepted to culinary art school but has yet to find a way to pay for it. To top it all off, she is a DJ, and spins under the name “DJ Nexthursday.”
