Senior Sophie Gorman is involved in many school activities. Gorman says, “I was in gymnastics for most of my life. I was in swimming for one year, and I have been in band for six years. I was also in Key Club for two years, and I volunteered at Schneck Medical Hospital. I am a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). I work at the Lutheran Community Home and Kovener’s Korner. I volunteered at the polls in 2014. I was a queen candidate for a Cancer Research Dance created by Phi Beta Psi Sorority, and I was in newspaper for 2 years.”

She wants freshman to to know to “Be yourself. Don’t worry about being popular or hanging out with people you think are better than you, be with people who truly care about you and whatever is important to you.” Sophie’s favorite memory of high school was when her and current boyfriend, Zechariah Newton, were Romeo and Juliet freshman year in Mrs. Cottrill’s English class, and they acted out the play together and kissed her on the cheek!

Sophie’s overall favorite teacher is either Mrs. Cottrill, Mr.Fallis, or Mr.Wilson. She says “They’re all so chill, and they actually care about their students’ future. They take their jobs seriously and care about what they teach.” Her biggest inspiration is herself. She knows that sounds “self-centered” but she motivates herself to do her best and she has always pushed herself forwards.

She does not have a specific favorite musical artist but she loves all genres of music. “Some of my favorite artists/ groups are Cory Asbury, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, 21 Savage, XXXTentacion, Jars of Clay, Nirvana, Blue October, Camila Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar.” Her favorite color is yellow, she loves a lot of different kinds of food but her favorite is sushi.

She can not wait for change from high school, but she will miss all of her friends when they go separate ways. She is “excited for what God is leading me towards”. Gorman cannot wait to make new friends and memories. After high school she plans to “attend Indiana University – Bloomington” and get her “bachelor’s degree in nursing” After that, she will most likely attend UIndy to achieve her master’s degree in nursing and eventually become a nurse anesthesiologist.

Her ultimate life goal is to become an amazing mother to the children she has. She wants to be the best mother she could ever be. As lasting words, she wants anyone who is depressed or suicidal to know “ you will always be loved and cared for no matter what you are going through.”
