Inklings News

Sophie de Bruijn is not your typical high school senior. When she’s not a varsity basketball star or lighting up the stage with her amazing voice, she is an Inklings breaking news managing editor, and a very good one at that.


In fact, one of her proudest breaking news articles is about a local teacher winning the Wheel Of Fortune.


Aside from her love of sports and journalism, she loves helping people and even wants to pursue a career in the medical field. One of her main reasons for her interest in the medical field is because she was personally affected by a terrifying medical situation when she was a freshman.


“It is really meaningful to me especially since my mom had breast cancer when I was a freshman,” said Bruijn.


This summer, in order to get a jump-start on her new anticipated career, de Bruijn was awarded a research fellowship at The Jackson Laboratory, specifically studying the genetic precursors for ovarian cancer.


Sophie will definitely go far with her future, but no matter what she does or where she goes, she will always carry around her love for journalism.
