Former NBS TV political reporter Remmy Bahati is among the international students that graduated from Columbia University in the city of New York.
Earlier on Wednesday, she posted photos of her clad in her graduation gown alongside her friends (also grandaunts) on her social media platforms.
“I graduated with Master of Science in Journalism from @Columbia & joined the elite group of 7.5% of black journalists in America and 0.01% of female Africans to have graduated-from Ivy League schools. None of this could have been possible without God, family & friends,” Read Bahati’s tweet.
“Not everyone can say they earned their degree in a pandemic. Here is proof that i’m resilient enough,” she said Wednesday. It’s an exhilarating, yet surreal feeling to introduce myself to the world as a Columbia-trained Journalist,” she added.

Before joining Columbia, she served as a United States Correspondent for television stations in Africa. She also served as a political and investigative reporter for NBS Television attached to the Ugandan Parliament.

She has contributed to Columbia News Service, New York Times, TRT World and Citizen TV and In 2017, she was nominated to be a youth delegate to the United Nations.
