Hi there! I’m Riya Chinni and this is my third year on HiLite staff. This year, I’m serving as a Managing Editor but  I have served as Student Section Reporter, Student Section Editor and a News copy editor in the past.

Outside of HiLite, I love to freelance for the CURRENT, work with Carmel UNICEF, shadow and volunteer in hospitals and nap a lot! You can check out my some of my work to the right :)
