Rhaya Truman, Managing Editor

Rhaya Truman is a senior at DGS and is the Managing Editor for the Blueprint. She has participated in basketball and dance in her DGS years and is currently a member of the Speech team. She is involved in many organizations, for example, Kpop club,  Peer Tutors, Speech, Mustang Way Leaders and the Communications Officer for the Student Council Executive Board.

Her favorite things to do are go to concerts, shopping and traveling. She will be attending the University of Arizona in the fall of 2019. She will be double majoring in Communications and Gender and Women's Studies. 

Truman received an honorable mention for her first print in depth piece at NISPA and multiple awards for her reviews. She was also a state qualifier in review writing and placed 3rd at her sectional. She was a member of the 2018 Blueprint state winning team.

Truman has an obsession with 90’s culture and lives "the retro way" in order to fill her void of not being born in the best era of all time. Some of her favorite recent artists are Tyler, The Creator, Logic and J. Cole, which all contain the vintage vibes her old soul craves. 

She wants to be fluent in at least three languages in her life and travel to multiple countries. She lives her life in aesthetics and has a secret love for interior design. She believes if she does not win the senior elective for best dressed, her high school career was not worth it. Her favorite show is the Get Down, she has a pretty cool record collection, loves meeting new people and treats life like a never ending good book.
