On February 7, 2018, Youth Empowerment Telereporter Aryon Holley appeared on WNET Channel 13's public affairs program, MetroFocus, to talk about a news story she produced called the Plague of Sexual Assault.

She is a part of an initiative by the Digital Media Training Program to train citizen journalists who report on people and issues of importance in their communities.

Holley is a senior at New Explorers High School in the Bronx. Her report examines the high incidence of sexual assault among teenagers in her neighborhood. Holley also profiles dancer and choreographer Jinah Parker who created a dance performance called SHE, a choreopoem that explores the issues of gender violence.

Previews for the Off-Broadway run of SHE begin on March 31 and opens on April 6th
