The Chimes

Hannah Dilanchyan
Hannah Dilanchyan is a sophomore journalism major who loves going to the beach, finding new hiking trails, and wants to visit every national park on the West Coast.



Hey everyone! I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. I am a sophomore visual media journalism major who is passionate about seeking out the truth in all things. Growing up, I used to make homemade “newspapers” for my parents, often writing about news around the house. As a kid, I was interested in political and global news. My favorite subject is definitely history, specifically World War II and aviation history. I chose to attend Biola University because I wanted a college that was passionate about loving and worshiping God above anything else, as well as a place I would be sure to learn ethical journalism.

Whenever I can, I love spending my time outdoors. Some of my favorite locations are a small Redwood Grove in Brea, CA, nestled in the hills of Carbon Canyon as well as the beaches of Newport Beach, CA, which hold a full day of fun and sun. I love to surf, find new hiking trails, and do it all with my friends! Another of my favorite hobbies would be finding hidden gems all around Southern California, from bakeries to old museums. I am stoked to be apart of the Chimes this semester and excited to grow as a storyteller during my time here.
