The Journal Rewired

Sophie Barker

Sophie Barker, News Reporter

Howdy y’all! I’m Sophie Barker, and I’m a brand new News writer for The Journal! I’m a sophomore, and this will be my first year on staff. Throughout middle school I was interested in trying out News writing, and after taking Mr. K’s journalism class as a freshman, I knew I had to join The Journal. I’ve always loved writing in general, things like opinion essays, arguments, stories, you name it. In addition to writing, I love listening to and playing music. I was practically raised by Michael Jackson and classic rock. Since then I’ve also grown a love for musicals, although I could never shake my stage fright enough to star in one. I’ve been playing the clarinet in concert band for almost five years, and in marching band for almost two years. My longest standing hobby is tap dancing, which I’ve been doing since I was 5 (you can read about that on The Journal Rewired, “Timeless tapping,” by the great Lucy Hiller!). In my free time, I like to watch cartoons, anime and take care of my pets. I’m a cat person and own two cats of my own, along with two dogs. My favorite subjects in school are English and History. I’m really looking forward to what this year will bring!
