April Nguyen, Copy Editor

Senior April Nguyen is in her second year of journalism and her second year of being a Copy Editor. Nguyen is a joyful, honest and passionate person who values humor in people because a good sense of humor lightens up the atmosphere in any situation. Nguyen was first introduced to journalism in her freshman year, when former journalism adviser Laura Gordon Reska was visiting classes to introduce journalism as an elective option. Reska’s presentation piqued Nguyen’s interest, but as she was taking other classes it was not possible to switch. As the new school year goes on, Nguyen hopes to write more  Arts & Culture pieces, because she has not explored that yet. She enjoys writing in-depth topics because she is fond of following the narrative through with detail. In the past, Nguyen has covered the topic of sex education at UPA, a course that was being developed as she was reporting on it. As she dove deeper into the topic, she realized that there was so much unexplained. Not being able to take the unit due to Covid two whole grade levels now, Seniors and Juniors were unable to take the course. Outside of journalism, Nguyen has been involved in multiple clubs and extracurriculars such as ASB, VSA, Body positive club, singing club, and Girl Up. Nguyen enjoys using her voice to speak out on important topics.
