Valentine’s Day Love Fest

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is our Valentine’s Day Special. Our hosts Rose and Ruhani wrap this festive holiday with information on creative recipes and love movies and books. Rose gives great ideas on healthy eats to share with friends on Valentine’s Day. Ruhani follows up with fun films to watch with your yummy treats including For All the Boys I Loved Before, The Notebook, and maybe even Titanic. If you are looking for a good book, Ruhani provides a short list of page-turners like The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, The Song of Achilles, or The Great Gatsby, In segment one, Diya gives us an historical reference for the creation of Valentine’s Day. Did you know that Cupid originated from the Greek god, Eros? Or that candy hearts started out as throat lozenges? To piggyback on the holiday history Diya presented, new reporter, Hannah Sahota takes us on a journey through a ride of traditions, executions, and (as expected) love! For those who are single, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to take time for yourself and practice self-care or enjoy time with friends, and even known as Galentine’s. Have a great Valentine’s Day (single or not) and have fun! Share the love.

Bio: Hanna Sahota Hannah Sahota is a junior at Turlock High School who is active both in and out of the classroom. As the first ladder player on the THS Varsity Tennis Team, she takes that competitive nature to campus, being a leader within the Science Olympiad and Math Clubs representing Turlock in statewide competitions. In her free time, Hannah has enjoyed playing the piano for the last nine years.

She is extremely passionate about promoting gender equality and youth empowerment through education and literature. To accomplish this, Hannah has tutored a diverse group of students for the last five years through Sundar S.T.E.A.M Academy. Through her experiences tutoring, Hannah has begun “Hannah’s Project”, a charitable organization dedicated to providing young girls with a platform to pursue an interest in STEM subjects.

After listening to the broadcasts and shows on Express Yourself! Teen Radio, Hannah was fascinated with the informative and engaging content written and produced by teens like herself. Through her platform, she hopes to educate her peers with a diverse and relevant array of discussion topics. Her segment is called Empowerment and Equality.
