“I’m not really a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Too many people “showing love” only on a certain day and fail to show the rest of the year. Now it’s also a day of friendship and I’m about that. Friendships are very important to me. I’m picky who I call a friend.”


Angie Baquedano is the Assistant Lifestyle Editor at Niner Times. She is close to completing her Creative Writing major and Journalism Minor as an Undergraduate and hopes to one day work for The National Geographic Society. When Angie isn’t swamped with homework or working her CNA job she can be found traveling, reviewing restaurants for Charlotte Food Adventures or taking up new hobbies such as painting with oil pastels (It changes depending on what inspires her that week).
