The Southerner

Sophie Downey
My name is Sophie Downey, and I am a senior and  the Features editor of the Southerner. I love being a part of the Southerner because it is a really interesting way to get to know all different parts of South and hear a variety of people's opinions on many different issues. Besides being a reporter and editor, I dance, and like making things. A fun fact about me is that I've been growing out my hair for over ten years.
