Fall/Winter 2019's Featured Alumni: Zach Kayal
Zach Kayal is this Fall/Winter's Featured Alumni. A graduate from the Class of 2014, Zach attended Hofstra University. From there, he graduated Cum Laude in 2018 with a degree in Mass Media Communications and a minor in Creative Writing.
During his senior year, he was named Senior of the Year for the School of Communications for his work on two independent studies. The first independent study was "How Social Media impacted the 2016 Presidential Election", and in 2016 he was asked to go to Boston to share his findings with the Eastern Communication Association, and his second involved his senior thesis which was "Social Media Slot Machine: A Look at the Connection Between Social Media and the Development of Mental Illnesses".
Since graduating, Zach has been working full time as the Head of Marketing & Business Development for Lynx Mortgage Bank, LLC. in Long Island, NY. In March of last year, he was selected to receive the 30 under 30 award on Long Island. The award highlights the 30 most successful individuals under the age of 30 on Long Island. This past July, he was selected as one of the recipients for the Top 100 magazine. The magazine does a yearly publication of the top 100 people in the real estate industry across the country. In addition to working at Lynx Mortagage Bank, LLC., he has also been working to launch his own social media marketing company, where he has begun taking on outside clients working as a freelancer.
