My name is Sophie Cannon and I have just (miraculously) completed my first year at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. I am a journalism major with minors in international affairs, communication studies and Jewish studies. 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 in Israel. 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 and most recently India, where I helped film and write a documentary about feminism. I am currently the Managing Editor at the Huntington News and the Music Editor and Head Copy Editor for Artistry Magazine. I also work for the New England Newspaper and Press Association e-Bulletin as an editorial assistant. 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. When not writing, editing or hanging out with my Huntington News family, I can be found at local concerts, watching Netflix series and listening to early 2000’s pop music. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to report abroad, especially in a place so beautiful and interesting as Greece.
