Nadia Hines, Team Editor

Nadia Hines is a senior at UPA in her third year of journalism. Hines swims, dances, does photography outside of school and does cheerleading for UPA. She writes her own songs and is even involved with the singing club at UPA. Hines uses singing as a way to express her emotions and share who she is. She performs outside of the school at concerts, theater, open mic nights, and church. Growing up in a mixed household, Hines has become much more open to try new things. Hines values humor and kindness in her friends because she believes that it’s much more fun to laugh with people and have fun company around than to be with boring people. Last year, Hines was Aquila's Social Media Manager, but is now a Team Editor. Hines published her first Aquila contribution, “Friendships at a Distance,” in May 2021 when the first global lockdown took place due to COVID-19. The article was about maintaining relationships with friends while simultaneously dealing with the hardships of social distancing. When it comes to journalism, she focuses on photojournalism, in-depths, and features. Hines has hopes to eventually be either a marine biologist or become involved in criminology. Her interest in criminology had sparked while she had started watching criminal minds. She became involved with marine biology because of her love of the ocean and its animals. Hines continued to show her love for marine biology by taking the marine biology course at UPA.
