Meet the FREEP Team
Thy Nguyen Editor In Chief
Hello! My name is Thy Nguyen and I'm part of the class of 2021. I was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and lived there for 12 years, when I moved to Houston, Texas. I'm a dual citizen of Vietnam and the United States. I joined the Babson Free Press because I believe that writing is an excellent way to express thoughts and experiences, and writing is one of my favorite things to do. Now, I want to further expand my skillset and share writing with the Babson student body. I have seen how wonderful the journalism community at Babson is and I believe that it can be even further promoted and developed.
Hi my name is Lada Alexey Peshkovsky, I am class of 2023 and grew up in Washington Heights, NYC. I deeply admire the way that skilled writers elegantly depict their ideas on paper and bravely allow others to temporarily visit their thoughts. I joined the Free Press because I want to further develop my own writing skills and because I want to be a part of an organization that encourages and provides a platform for the flow of ideas.
Lada Peshkovsky President
I was born in Guatemala City, where I’ve lived most of my life. When I graduated school, I took a gap year in Switzerland and now I’m an incoming Sophomore at Babson. I joined The Babson Free Press because I’m passionate about communicating ideas through different types of media, and adding a touch of creativity to the business world. Apart from being involved on campus, I enjoy making music, taking photos, people-watching at cafés and travelling.

Sunny Tianyi Head Layout Designer
My name is Tianyi Sun (Sunny) and I am currently a first-year (Class of 2013). I am from Beijing, China. This is my first time being a contributor to The Free Press. Over the past few years, I have expressed my passion for writing through journalism. I think it is important to get the community to express their different perspectives and to provide the community with a platform for them to do so. It is important for a diverse community like Babson to share their opinions and beliefs. In my free time, I enjoy taking and editing videos and playing tennis.
Currently, I am a sophomore at Babson College from Revere, Massachusetts. I joined the Free Press because I believe that students should understand their community and have access to information on the environment of their four-year journey.
