Rhea Acharya
Hi! I’m Rhea Acharya, and I’m so excited to be the Cover Story Editor this year for my second year on HiLite staff. Last year, I was a Beats Editor and News Reporter. On the right, you can see some of the work I’ve done in these roles. Outside of HiLite, I love to hang out with my friends and family, play with my dog, read inspirational books, and jog around Carmel. I’m also a big fan of doodling, Jaffa cakes, and the number 11.

Rhea Acharya, Cover Editor
