Sophia Jones
Entertainment Editor | People & Places Editor

Sophia tries to live her life like the sun – setting her sights high and vowing to always rise up again. Always game for an adventure, Sophia loves widening readers and her own expectations of our vast, beautiful world. As a journalist, Sophia writes to inform. As a creative writer, Sophia strives to inspire. Overall, she hopes to captivate.

Culture – food, language, people, music and art – is her kryptonite.

As a journalism and art history major, Sophia’s major career goal is to use her work as a voice for the cultural arts. With a Greek mother and cajun father, Sophia is no stranger to traveling and delicious food. Whether treking up the Pyrennes or examining Bernini’s sculpture in the MET – Sophia gives every moment her all.

As president of her sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and an Executive Officer for the Society of Professional Journalists, Sophia loves interacting with and learning from others. As a reporter and columnist for The Crimson White, Mosaic Magazine and The Dome Sophia writes with clarity and originality.

Through her internships with The Tuscaloosa News, Tusk205.com and Alabama Heritage Magazine, Sophia also has experience in photography, design and copy-editing.

As a mentor for the University Honors College and member of the Honors College Assembly, Sophia upholds high standards for excellence in all her work – whether it be on campus in Tuscaloosa or through the vibrant streets of Spain.
