Hi! My name is Yana, and I’m the Video Chief for Thread this year. I’m a junior majoring in Integrated Media with a minor in Film. I’m from the Philippines, but I mostly lived abroad and have been traveling all over the world ever since. I’ve been to 25 countries so far and I can’t wait to see more of what’s out there. Traveling not only opened my mind but it also introduced me to my love for storytelling.
I plan on pursuing a career where I can compliment art and music in videos as well as use it to tell diverse stories. Aside from being a Video Chief, I’m also the Media Manager for Ohio University’s Global Ambassadors and I also work as an Event Support Assistant where I set up audio / visual tech in major event spaces around campus. During my free time (something I barely have these days), I’m either out with my friends, sketching portraits, binging Netflix shows or composing new music with my guitar and ukelele.
