Ria Pandey, Reporter

For Ria Pandey, a current sophomore and first-year journalism student, dance is a passion that has shaped much of her life; she has been performing since she was seven. She often spends her time watching YouTube dance videos from Matt Stefanina and 1 MILLION Dance Studio. Along with this, she is in UPA Guzaarish and loves to do Bollywood dance. It is one of her favorite dance styles because it is a fusion of several other styles, like hip hop. Additionally, Pandey sees herself pursuing a career more aligned with an expressive path rather than STEM. She’s interested in business, literature and other more artistic subjects like dance and design. Furthermore, Pandey is a strong believer that “Everything happens for a reason.” She says that she has had many experiences where this belief has come into play, in which she has felt a sense of loss only to find something better in the future. Lastly, Pandey speaks English as well as Hindi at home, a language she learned through conversations with her grandmother. Her family and friends are what she appreciates the most in her life because they are the people that look out and care for her.
