Beija Richardson

Music Director


Beija was born in Georgia, but had the great opportunity to travel and live in multiple states and abroad during the majority of her childhood. Traveling played a big part in two of her greatest hobbies, music and exploring what the world has to offer. Traveling allowed different perspectives on taste and creativity especially when it comes to music. Being the Music Director allows Beija to use those skills for curating and maintaining the station’s library of music. Traveling also leads to her goal in college of obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology.
