Emma Tran, Staff Reporter
Emma Tran is a Senior at CT and it’s her first year in Digital Media. She’s interested in being able to tell stories and explore her creative side within those stories. As a second generation immigrant in her family, Emma is thrilled to see what opportunities she’s able to experience and face challenges she’ll overcome. When she was younger, she used to play with cameras and when she got older, grew more experienced with video editing. While AP assignments and her part-time job take up most of her time, she uses every ounce of free time to read and go to concerts. Emma hopes to gain experience in news telling, writing, organizing, and production in order to graduate with different experiences and knowledge she’s never had before. After graduating, she hopes to be a software engineer and travel around the world.
