Betty Nguyen
Betty Nguyen, a junior, is participating in journalism for the first time this year. Fashion is her passion, and she dreams of studying fashion business and fashion journalism. Guided by her motto, “nothing is impossible,” she aims to work in the fashion industry for a magazine or as the CEO of her own company. She describes her own fashion sense as girly and pink, and she admires Marchesa, a brand of high-end gowns because of their inspiring ornate and princess-like style. She wants to travel the world some day, specifically to Paris because of its abundant culture, fashion and historical significance. Like cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream, Betty has many sides to her. She enjoys photography and spends time taking scenic pictures to edit for her Instagram. Along with photography, Betty likes to sketch, paint and make collages. Music is also important in her life; she practices piano, listens to her favorite artists (K-pop, pop and the “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” soundtrack) and participates in musical productions at UPA. If she could spend a day with a celebrity, she’d spend it with Lily James, and they would reenact a scene from “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” with the rest of her cast. As a Sagittarius, Betty adores reading horoscopes, and she checks hers often online. Her other hobbies include reading exciting novels and watching Netflix; her favorite shows are “Supergirl” and “Boys Over Flowers” because the female protagonists are relatable and the positive themes inspire her. Betty participates in taekwondo outside of school where she’s earned a black belt second dan, and in school, she has taken part as a leader in the Web & Link program. She is fluent in both English and Vietnamese, and she’s trying to learn more languages including Spanish, French, Korean and Japanese.
