My name is Sophie Rosenthal. I am a senior at Elon University, where I am pursuing a major in journalism with a minor in policy studies. At Elon University's student-run news organization, Elon News Network, I have spent four years working as a reporter and copy editor. I previously served as the managing editor of The Pendulum, our weekly student newspaper. I also work at the Center of Writing Excellence on Elon’s campus as a writing center consultant. I was born and raised in New York City and worked there the past two summers as an intern for Spectrum News NY1 and WPIX PIX11 News.
