Janessa Ulug
For Janessa Pelin Ulug, a current sophomore and second-year journalist, justice is a very important aspect of her life. Ulug prefers to cover hard-hitting topics, making sure to research, incorporate, and portray various viewpoints. Ulug enjoys writing, reporting and editing; she hopes to continue reporting on important topics far into her future and incorporate some aspect of journalism into her career when she gets older. In particular, Ulug likes to write in-depth articles, as she enjoys immersing herself in topics and learning about them. Aside from expanding her journalistic skills, Ulug enjoys programming and is often immersed in coding from the influences of her home in the Bay Area as well as her parents’ engineering professions. Her passion drove her to run the Girls Who Code club, and she enjoys collaborating and making projects alongside being the Secretary of Clubs at UPA where she helps plan activities and run important ASB events and rallies. Her favorite quote, “Do not go gently into that good night” comes from the movie Interstellar, which she has loved and rewatched since she was a young girl. She enjoys the quote because of the many meanings which can be interpreted from it, one of them being “fight for what you believe in.”
