September’s Sweet of the Month is Sophia! She is a senior at Lincoln East High School and has been with Goldenrod since January of her sophomore year of high school – almost two years! Sophia is very involved in the music program at East, and is part of not one, but TWO choirs – show choir and regular choir. You also can catch her on stage at East, Oct. 26-28 in the ensemble of Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella!
This Lady Gaga-loving lass is the biggest pop star’s fan and has seen her TWICE in concert (she does many things in twos). Need a CD? Sophia loves making mix CDs for people and will be more than happy to hook you up with one!
When she isn’t cuddling up to her schnoodle (schnauser-poodle!) named Chowder (see below), Sophia can be found munching on Taco Inn’s nachos with flour chips or reading her about her astrological place in the world. She collects crystals for their energy and is a firm believer in the energy flows of the universe.
She fell in love with Goldenrod from the very first bite of a chocolate cupcake – her favorite! – and says that she feels very lucky to have an after school job that she loves so much.
Sophia is unsure about the future beyond high school, but wherever she’s going she’s sure going to excel at it!
Fun fact: Sophia’s grandparents and great-grandparents and Angela’s grandparents knew each other, as some of the great Sicilians in Lincoln back in the day (like waaaaaay back)!
