She is a budding journalist with a passion for politics.
“Confrontation done in a respectful manner is okay. But when it’s done by attacking other people, it gets disrespectful.” Not a big debate person, but Sophie Nikolenko has strong opinions that she will share, as long as it’s respectful.
Soon to be a senior, Nikolenko’s an avid field hockey player and journalist with dreams of going to Emerson college.
She’s filled with passion for the truth, but will never tear down another person to get there.
Nikolenko is looking forward to voting in the next election, and reminds everyone that even the little votes can make a big difference. “All elections are important, and they all make a difference.”
