Pulse is a monthly Caribbean public affairs program that aims to give a better understanding of the island community. "We live in such a multicultural city that it's amazing to see how most people don't know about each other’s culture beyond the usual stereotypes and clichés," she says. "Hopefully Pulse can shed some light on the Caribbean community and way of life in South Florida." Pulse also features special episodes with renowned artists and prominent personalities in the Miami community and internationally.
As a multimedia producer for WPBT2's video-sharing website uVu, Jessy has covered cultural, political and educational events throughout the South Florida area. She has worked alongside numerous non-profit organizations and foundations to encourage citizens of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties to express their views via online video segments.
Her latest WPBT2 venture was to produce Miami's Island Art, a mini-documentary which centers on Afro-Caribbean art for the PBS national Fall Art festival. The project featured Roberto Ramos from the Cuba Ocho Gallery located in the burgeoning Calle Ocho Arts District, and the newly built Little Haiti Cultural Center, which is home to renowned artist Edouard Duval Carrié and the African dance ensemble Delou. Both Duval Carrié and Delou use art as a tool to build communities.
Fluent in three languages, French, English and Creole, Jessy is a voice-over talent dubbing Latin telenovelas (soap operas) for distribution in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
Jessy started her broadcast career as the host of a weekly entertainment show En Vogue for the Haitian Television Network (HTN) in 2003. After her stint at HTN, she decided to further her education and enrolled at Miami-Dade College and later the University of Miami. While in college, she interned for the Miami Herald as a reporter, and ultimately became a freelance writer for the newspaper after graduation.
Jessy Schuster has also attended the Universite of Fouillole in Guadeloupe, Marc Bloch University in France, and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and Communication with an emphasis in Print Journalism from the University of Miami. She was born in France and raised in Guadeloupe, a French island in the Caribbean.
