The Bronx spans 42 square miles, divides into 61 different sections, and though it may not be the largest borough in New York City, it houses 1.5 million people…extraordinary people.

BXTRA is a series that will explore the unique individuals who are either from the Bronx or have a growing business in the Bronx.

The host, Tatyana Turner is a Bronx native who grew up in the Mott Haven and Grand Concourse sections. She has experience in print journalism and photography. In December 2016, Tatyana graduated from Temple University with a degree in Communication Studies and returned to her home in the Bronx where she is applying her skills to further discover the extraordinary people and places in her borough. Starting in May of 2018, Tatyana hopes to collate her work on BXTRA with her studies at Columbia University as she earns her Master’s Degree in Journalism.
