Vidya Achar, Team Editor

Vidya Achar is a sophomore in her second year of journalism. Achar aspires to be an immigration lawyer in order to help immigrants secure better lives for their families, and she enjoys discussing politics and voicing her opinions on current matters. Being aware of how politics affects her everyday life is something Achar finds extremely important. In the same vein, reaching out to people and getting real opinions on different topics is one of the main reasons she enjoys journalism. Aside from politics, Achar’s interests include digitally creating her own versions of portrait photos using the app Autodesk Sketchbook. Oil paintings are a favorite of hers though she typically only makes five to six of them, mostly during the summer, since the oil paintings take time to dry. At age four, Achar started dancing, and it has become one of her main interests. She is also a TA for children in her dance class. She listens to Carnatic music, which is also known as Indian classical music. Speaking both English and Kannada, Achar’s linguistic background heavily influences her music tastes. The negative impact on society that political rivalries have is something Vidya thinks the public should be more aware of, and she looks forward to writing more about politics with Aquila.
