The 28-year-old New Yorker shot to fame as the star of the 2010 movie.
Showing off her hustle skills, Nessa also began doing another show on POWER 106 KPWR called “West Coast Report,” essentially meaning she was concurrently an on-air personality in the two largest radio markets on the West Coast.
(I know, I’m not exactly Sherlock Holmes with that one.) In addition to writing songs, Nessa did some remixing as well, and it was one of these remixes that first got her a little bit of attention.
“I used to remix songs and even had one of my remixes played on air BEFORE I was officially in radio,” Nessa wrote in one of her online biographies.
“It was a remix called ‘Rydaz’ for the Destiny Child’s song ‘Soldier.'” At the time she made the “Rydaz” remix, Nessa was a student at UC Berkeley.
She was always a big fan of music and turned her sights towards radio.
The film's success spawned a namesake MTV docudrama series now in its second season.
Schulman hosts the show and plays the moderator role, uniting Internet couples who haven't met in person, with filmmaker Max Joseph. He's been featured in Elle; June 25, 2013 (season 2's premiere date) was deemed National Catfish Day; Schulman was tapped to comment on Manti Te'o; and he and Max even offer online dating advice.
Nessa’s full name is Nessa Diab and she is originally from Southern California.
As a child she moved back and forth from California to the Middle East because of her father’s job, and it was during this time that she first began writing songs.
