Annie Qiao is your 2019-20 Arts & Entertainment Editor for her fourth year at the Pilot! As a passionate admirer of the arts, she hopes to bring a refreshing take to this section and leave an impact on the program. Outside of journalism, you can probably find her playing tuba in the band room or digging in at the nearest Chipotle, so if you see her, be sure to strike up a conversation about Kurzgesagt, Bon Appétit, her adorable cat Riceball, or anything in general.
