For Sophie, the move from the Southeast to the Midwest was an exciting one. As a child, she moved with her parents often, living in Southeast Asia, Africa and Europe before starting college. She says her parents passed down their love for seeing new places, and now loves to travel herself.
With a passion for storytelling, Sophie likes learning new things and meeting new people; two wonderful perks of being a journalist. While she's not working, you can catch her hanging out with friends, trying new food and exploring Central Illinois.
While she misses the beaches of North Carolina, Sophie loves all that Illinois has to offer, including all of the festivals in the Peoria area!
