Ria Pandey, Copy Editor

Returning for her second year in journalism, junior Ria Pandey aspires to branch out from articles and begin graphic design in Aquila’s newsmagazine. With extensive practice in art and her great interest in the subject, Pandey wants to focus more attention on the artists in her community. Her desire to attend UCLA and major in user interface design has driven Pandey to use journalism as a pathway to gain experience in the arts. Furthermore, Pandey hopes to gain a sense of community with her fellow journalists in Aquila, especially since her first year as part of the publication occurred in a distance learning context. To extend her profile, Pandey speaks fluent English and Hindi. With her Northern and Southern Indian roots, Pandey was able to pick up the language at a young age. Despite Pandey's egg allergy, her extensive sweet tooth makes her two favorite foods unsurprising: muffins and gummy bears. Taylor Swift’s Reputation can be heard on repeat in Pandey’s head. Ever since Swift’s “You Belong with Me” music video, Pandey has been obsessed with the pop singer and does not plan to retire it any time soon. Pandey’s aspirations have become nothing but bigger since her past year in journalism, and she plans to take on whatever challenges that may arise in the next year.
