Lyric Spray

The girl about to take over the world   When you pass by this sophomore girl on Main Street, don’t underestimate her. She’s here to fight for herself, for us, and for humanity.  Behind closed doors, Lyric Spray studies intensely about the brain—all the complexities, circuitry, and unexplored territory that encompasses this fascinating object.

Emily Pham

Emily Pham. I never knew much about her until I had the delight of talking with her. Here’s what I learned.     She’s creative in the sense that she loves trying new things.

He’s also good at it. He recently committed to Hood College in Frederick, Maryland to play soccer. For him, the commitment...

Edwin Jiang

“Who am I?” a question almost every first-generation American introspects.

Though, it’s a ...

Eric Caulfield

From Fencing to Filmmaking   How can one turn a passion of fencing into a career in film?  For Eric Caulfied, it is not about the sport or field itself, but the values he has learned from his inspirations in each area.  Fencing has consumed a large part of Eric’s childhood; he’s been a part of a local team from third grade to eighth grade and from junior year of high school to now. ...
