Ishan Madan, Web Manager

Senior Ishan Madan begins his second year in Aquila as its web editor, tying in directly with his aspirations to study computer science, enter the tech world and start a robotics company. As a self-described “nerdy coder,” he spends his time working on his robotics team as its programming and electrical lead, leading the UPA Robotics Club as a co-president, and competing in Science Olympiad. He does, however, also diversify his interests with Guzaarish and the Desi Student Association. Outside of school, Madan is a Boy Scout working towards the rank of Eagle and teaches Taekwon-Do, though he often finds himself rereading “Harry Potter.” He values the ability to make others laugh and lift their spirits, both of which are important qualities to have since, as Steve Jobs said in Madan’s favorite quote, “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.” In addition to his role as an editor, Madan hopes to learn more about and produce coverage on media literacy and the increasing role of opinions and emotions in determining what actually is “fact” and “fiction” in modern news. The efforts of journalists already working towards raising awareness on this subject inspire him to further his own interest, advance his abilities and cover more news.
