Vidya Achar, Managing Editor

Vidya Achar, a third-year journalism student in her junior year, shows her dedication to spreading truthful and reliable information. One of Achar’s favorite pieces she wrote was “God loves… Most?” which dissects the intersection of the LGBTQ+ community and religion. Achar’s aspiration is to continue to help and inform on current events. This year, she plans on covering COVID-19 and also hopes to also cover topics such as racism since she believes that this topic has not had enough attention in the media. She aims to accomplish this through interviewing as many people as possible, which is one of her favorite aspects of journalism because she enjoys talking to people and learning more about them. Achar gets this charismatic and outgoing personality from her artistic side, being an oil painter and multimedia aficionado. Her love of art taught her that judgement-free zones are important to intentionally maintain in this day and age. She finds inspiration in her motto “If you have to choose between ending your life and ruining it, ruin it every time” to be fearless in confronting the stories she believes are important for the community.
