Marianne Nacanaynay, 2018-2019 TEMPO Executive Editor

For Marianne Nacanaynay, involvement in journalism began in the fourth grade, when she asked a friend to start a newspaper with her. After that, Nacanaynay began working with her middle-school publication and freelanced along the way.

In her freshman year of high school, Nacanaynay joined the Hawkeye staff.

She served as Op-Ed Editor her sophomore and junior years and worked on the yearbook as Editor of TEMPO her junior and senior years.

Throughout that time, among other things, Nacanaynay learned to design and podcast, covered a Trump presidential campaign rally and got her work published in a New York Times' newsletter.

After school, she volunteers for Habitat for Humanity, is president of ASL Club, serves as a representative on the school board and is on the business team for Terrace's robotics program.

The Hawkeye thanks Nacanaynay for her contributions and wishes her the best as she continues her studies at Gonzaga University and pursues her dreams of working abroad.
