Amanda Nguyen, Staff Writer

Hello! My name is Amanda Nguyen. I’m a senior, and this is my third year as a staff writer for The Roar. I have a passion for writing in all forms, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me throughout my life. When I’m not writing for our school’s newspaper, I am either with friends or family, looking for something in the pantry, or, of course, shopping. Let’s have a great year, Lions!
