Meet the Y57 Team: Rhinnan Payne


Rhinnan Payne

Hey Rhinnan! Tell us a bit about yourself.

I live in Burnaby and study Communication at SFU. When I’m not at school or the station, I’m probably watching an indie movie on Netflix or listening to a podcast while drawing.

Choose three words to describe you.

Outgoing, creative, and witty.

Why did you join Y57?

I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn a new skill set, and I really enjoyed the idea of showcasing local artists to highlight all the diverse indie artists Vancouver has to offer.

What do you do at Y57?

I am a host and the social media coordinator.

What is your favourite part about being part of Y57?

Honestly, the Y57 Team. Everyone I work with is super fun, supportive and entertaining. We work together really well, so I always look forward to my Tuesday night at the studio with them.

Give yourself a nickname for what you do on the show:

I typically go by Rhi, but the Y57 team likes to call me the ‘social media queen’.

What is your greatest life goal?

I really want to travel the world.

What are three things that you cannot live without?

Family, comedy, and coffee.

What is your biggest fear?

Heights!! Anything that’s super super high and a little unsteady, like an old bridge, I’m out!!!

Which celebrity would play you in the movie about you, Rhinnan?

Amandla Stenberg – obviously. She’s a great actor and an empowering activist.

Make a 5-song playlist of your favourite songs!

“All The Ways” by WET
