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, Jewish studies and political science. 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 and my high school publication Zephyrus as the culture editor and staff writing manager. I am currently the managing editor at the Huntington News and the music editor and head copy editor of Artistry Magazine. I also work for Introspxct Magazine as a staff writer and photographer and for the New England Newspaper and Press Association e-Bulletin as an editorial assistant.
