Hey, this is Wenjing Ding, you can call me Rania, a Journalist at Emerson College in Boston MA . Finding the people’s stories is fascinating to me and as an extremely observant individual, I’ve taken what I’ve learned about how we humans interact and am able to use that insight to create fun, and exciting social media and News specials. Back in the 90s I grew up in China. I can fluently speak Chinese (Mandarin), English, some Japanese, and Korean. At BHCC, I served as Editor for the fall 2018 Tell Magazine: The Identity Edition. I know how to produce video and audio packages for the web and am adept at using social media. Currently I have been published in DigBoston, WEBN-TV News, WEBJ News, Overseas Students and Covering Immigration website. Outside of work, I love singing, cooking new recipes, writing stories, playing piano, taking and editing photos, and hanging out with friends. Ballet "Swan Lake" is my favorite; Pumpkin Cakes are also my favorite guilty pleasure, as they remind me of growing up in China. I am currently working on a documentary about ballet dancers. I cannot wait to meet you. Maya Escobar is a first-year student at the Vermont Center for Cartoon Studies, a renowned school for comics art. For twenty years she worked in youth services for the Cambridge Public Library, during which time she received a Masters in Library and Information Science from Simmons University and became the teen services librarian for the Main Library. Maya's love of comics creation stems in part from witnessing first hand the power of visual literacy and storytelling in shaping young readers. Along with making her own stories, she is interested in how both youth and marginalized voices use the comics medium and zine-making and how this work can be supported by libraries. Her favorite Marvel movie is Into the Spider-Verse and she cries every time.
