Hello! I am Sophia Martin. I am a Junior at Foran High School. This is my first year of journalism and I'm super excited to be a part of it. I was in Key Club for my first year of high school and I'm looking forward to doing it again this year. I am also excited to join new clubs and help out as much as I can this year. I love hanging out with my friends and family, I like going down to the beach, and I also have a job at a restaurant. I like participating in school and out of school activities and I always enjoy meeting new people.
