Hi sisters, I’m Sophie Barker and this year I’ll be working as the News Editor for The Journal! I’m currently a junior and this will be my second year on staff. I had a lot of fun writing for news last year and I’m excited to manage the section! Other than producing for the newspaper, I’ve also played clarinet for the marching band since freshman year, and it’s the main thing that's gotten me through high school. Outside of school I love hanging out with cats. Basically any cat that I’m around is an automatic friend, but I spend the most time with my two cats at home, Nola and Frankie. I also enjoy binging my favorite shows and movies, some of my current favorites being “Just Shoot Me!,” “Attack on Titan,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and “Death Note.” My favorite pastime is to go throughout my day while listening to music. My playlist changes every few months, but my one constant number one favorite for the past three years has been MARINA. I’m very impatiently waiting for her next album. I’m so excited for another year of producing with this crew!
