Sophi Thompson

Sophi Thompson is in her second year on the Pitch staff, moving into an Editor in Chief position for her senior year. Her roots in the Arts and Entertainment section won’t be forgotten, and WJ can expect some stressed out senior writing before she moves onto college where hopefully she’ll be studying either journalism or education. In her free time she adores her dogs and works at an ice cream shop.
