The Chant

Nadya Awino
Nadya Awino is a third-year photographer and reporter for The Chant. Although she started as an inexperienced sophomore with a dream, she has worked her way up to photo editor, one of her crowning achievements. As a senior, she dedicates her time to her responsibilities as an editor and as president of the Spirit Club here at NC. The club, inactive for the past four years, is a platform for students to voice their ideas or brainstorm activities for the school year. Awino says she restarted the club because students from last year were unwilling to participate in school events because they felt like they had no say. This year, she hopes to build her leadership skills and make her senior year an eventful one. When she’s not snapping pictures or organizing school events, Awino works as a student apprentice for the Reach for the Stars program at Acworth Elementary, as well as a sales associate at Journeys Kidz. Although she tells people she works two jobs for the money, she secretly lives for the discount she gets at Journey’s stores. In her spare time, she enjoys watching Law and Order: SVU, Cinderella, going shopping, and writing poetry; she also indulges in a variety of music, like Erykah Badu, 21 Savage, SZA, Tyler the Creator, and Beyonce. Look for her scathing reviews on movies, albums, and concerts on the Entertainment page of The Chant. She hopes to attend Emory University next fall, majoring in Psychology with a minor in sociology; she hopes to become a criminal psychologist and assist the FBI in probing the minds of felons. Catch her in the hallways searching for photo of the day or the next big scoop.
