Hi! I’m Sophia, I’m a sophomore, and this is my first year as a feature reporter and beats editor for the HiLite staff. I am incredibly lucky and grateful to be a part of this amazing community! If I’m not writing for HiLite, I’m probably writing my latest (never-to-be-finished) novel, but I also like to read, listen to podcasts, play violin, and obsess over the lives of fictional characters. I am part of the WHJE staff and the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra in Indianapolis as well.
