My name is Sophie Cannon and I am a sophomore at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. I am a journalism major with proposed minors in international affairs, English and political science.
I am currently working at The Boston Globe in the Living/Arts department. Back on campus, I am the the Editor-in-Chief of Artistry Magazine, Northeastern’s art and culture magazine and the Outreach Coordinator for the new chapter of Society for Professional Journalists at Northeastern University (SPJNU)
I was previously the managing editor at the Huntington News, the independant newspaper of the Northeastern community, and before that, I worked as the Deputy Arts and Entertainment Editor for the 2016-17 academic year.
I am from a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and after growing sick of the snow and Midwestern twang, I came out to Boston and have loved every second of it. Before Boston, however, I decided to take a break from the Twin Cities, and spent a semester of my junior year of high school abroad in Israel at the Alexander Muss High School. That trip inspired my passion for travel and embracing culture shock and I have had the travel bug ever since. Aside from Israel, I have visited Poland, India (where I helped film a documentary about feminism) and most recently Greece. While in Greece, I participated in a five-week journalism intensive where I reported on Greek culture and the refugee crisis.
In the past, I have written for publications such as MinnPost out of Minneapolis, the Head of the Charles River regatta website, Introspxct Magazine, New England Newspaper and Press Association e-Bulletin and my high school publication Zephyrus.
