Shayna Tran, Web Manager

Shayna Tran is a sophomore in her second year of journalism. She chose to continue the class to further explore her favorite aspects of journalism, such as writing, interviewing people, learning about different topics, exploring photojournalism, digital media and design. Tran values the happiness and health of her family and friends, as well as Vietnamese culture. She is currently participating in a Vietnamese program to learn more about the culture and language. She enjoys hanging out with her friends, eating Korean food and drinking milk tea. The best advice she has ever received is from her mother: “Do what makes you happy.” Tran has applied this to her life by pursuing journalism and choosing a career path that would make her happy. Tran aspires to a career in the computer science field due to her interest in design. An issue she wishes got more attention is the uptick in Asian hate crimes. One particular instance of a hate crime against Asian Americans that has impacted her hardest was the attack and murder of an elderly woman. One of her favorite contributions to Aquila is an article she wrote about the rise of milk tea and the best milk tea shops in the area. Tran enjoyed writing this article because she was able to write about something she loves, and she was able to inform people about what milk tea is, where it comes from and why people enjoy it.
