• About Man Nguyen

    Freshman Man Nguyen is excited to join the Blue and Gold staff as a reporter this year. Nguyen has always had great interest in writing and looks forward to exploring the social aspect of journalism. Nguyen has previous experience in journalism from his time in Vietnam where he attended an elementary school that had a newspaper club. Due to him being in Vietnam, he mainly reported in the Vietnamese language, but occasionally wrote articles and short stories in English. He was a part of this newspaper cub for about 5 months in the fifth grade. He also takes time to relive his mind through personal journaling. Green, purple, and blue are his three favorite colors. In his free time, he enjoys watching Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf. Currently, his favorite novel is Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver due to the plot being centralized on friendship. He also greatly appreciates a good slice of pizza, mainly buffalo chicken pizza.
