Hi! I’m Rhea Acharya, and this is my first year on HiLite staff. I’m excited to be filling the role of as a Beats Editor and News Reporter! Outside of HiLite, I love to spend time with friends and family, hang out with my dog, and participate in various clubs. I’m also a big fan of drawing, running, solving logic-based puzzles, and watching Netflix.
