The 2020 – 2021 MInd Reader family is a large family consisting of twenty-three students who were hand-picked by our production team mentor, Jannica Ruth Castillo (3A Advisor), and our publication team mentor, Beryl Joselle Veranga (6A Advisor).
Our mentors help us improve our writing skills, speech, teach us about writing and production and guide us through our questions to ensure that our talents and skills will flourish.
Our Editor-in-Chief, Maggie Liamzon (8A), is the overall leader of the MInd Reader staff. She helps and works with the mentors and editorial team in making decisions and she edits the works of her fellow writers. Assisting her is the Managing Editor, Juliana Subia, she works with her teammates by monitoring schedules, proofreading, and editing articles.
With a new job addition, we have our Social Media Manager, Adie De Guzman, who manages the social media of MInd Reader and she is expected to produce content.
The publication consists of nine members. Four junior staff writers, three columnists, and two editorial artists. The writers, Rafa Regalado (6A), Rylie Roco (6A), Aiden Chavez (7A), Liz Dogelio (8A), Erika Mangubat (8B), Gaby Malangen (8B), and Kinyo Caoili (8B), write quality news articles and other amusing pieces. Our very talented editorial artists produce art and plan designs that beguile our readers. Bea Oliva (7A) and Amber Gonzales (8A) create our comic strips, editorial art, and other pieces.
The Associate Editor, Sam Gapuz, heads the MInd Reader production team with making concepts, fabricating ideas, producing, and editing the content. We have Jaden Jusay and Andie Bohn as our production managers, who direct the vlog hosts and videographers in shooting videos. Both managers aid the associate editor. Scriptwriters Sara Nachura (8B) and Annabeth Sukumar (7B) helps with outlining drafts and ideas to produce our content. Jaq Sarmiento (8A), Ranveer Bisht (7B), Jaden Jusay, and Andie Bohn are our vlog hosts and concept artists who share ideas and host our vlogs. Finally, we have our video editors, Zophiel Villamarin and Reise Santiago. They work in editing and recording the videos.
We had the honor of testing out and getting adjusted with our new virtual setup during our MInd Reader Summer Camp, where the teachers taught us how to sharpen our skills with writing and they taught us how to film and edit videos.
MInd Reader hones the skills of aspiring journalists, writers, vlog hosts, and artists. Our goal is to entertain and inform our audience. So please, go ahead and enjoy our work!
