NY Elite Magazine is a cultural diplomacy magazine founded by Ermira Babamusta, Ph.D., featuring stories of arts and culture.
The purpose of NY Elite Magazine is to advance American arts and culture, to show the Christian spirit, and to showcase extraordinary talents from USA and around the world.
I founded NY Elite Magazine as a cultural diplomacy magazine to share America’s rich culture of performing and visual arts and to support arts and culture in general. I believe that a nation can best represent itself through arts and culture. We are excited to bring to New York success stories and achievements of arts and culture from USA and from artists around the world. We hope to share stories that inspire, that show leadership in the community and bring about positive change.
I value and support the great American nation and hope to share my love for the country and Christ by bringing forth brilliant artists and extraordinary achievers who make creative art and positive change, said Founder and Editor-in-Chief of NY Elite Magazine, Ermira Babamusta, Ph.D.
