Andrew Xiao, Staff Writer

Andrew Xiao is a new recruit of the 2021-2022 Journalism team in his junior year. Although he lacks much experience in many aspects of journalism, he hopes to be able to bring new ideas and integrate his broad skillset to the table. Growing up, he enjoyed reading the iconic graphic novel series TinTin, which follows a young journalist (His name is TinTin) and his dog, Snowy, in dangerous adventures as they partake in investigations and write news reports on notorious crime bosses, illegal drug trading networks, and stolen priceless artifacts. Of course, he will likely never become a journalist of such degree, but it is undeniable that Andrew’s interest in and passion for journalism is rooted in the frequent childhood reads of TinTin’s stories.

Besides journalism, Andrew enjoys programming, robotics, tutoring students, swimming, and making videos about competitive coding. In his free time, he also likes to spend time with friends and family. He is embarrassed of not owning a phone and is rather clumsy as a person, always forgetting tasks and bumping into things. Because Andrew’s primary interests are rooted in information technologies and artificial intelligence, he hopes to use journalism in some way to reveal the beauty and enjoyment of the world of robotics and engineering, as well of course, having fun. He loves having a good laugh and joking around with friends as well as lending a helping hand to anyone.
