Hi. I am Sonia Yost. This will be my second year writing for the newspaper. I’m pretty involved in school as I am a member of the drama club, scholastic scrimmage, speech league, FLC and the swim team. When I have the time I like to go bike riding, watch movies and listen to music. I really love breakfast food. Pancakes, waffles, bacon, eggs, hash browns, I love it all. After high school, I have a plan to move to Oregon and attend the University of Oregon. From there I want to live alone in the woods about 35 minutes from anyone else. I want to be able to work from home as a video editor for a company of some sort. The details are a bit fuzzy, but the plan is there. Other than my credit card information, that’s pretty much all you need to know about me.

Sonia Yost, Associate Editor
