Sophie Weitzman attends her local high school, where she is a cheerleader and is on the honor roll. She fell in love with writing in the eighth grade, and wrote this piece in the ninth grade, at first as an English assignment. Along with writing, Sophie loves archeology, and for a very long time wanted to be an Egyptologist. She also enjoys playing with her dog, debating, traveling, and being around friends. Her favorite place in the world is her summer camp, where she will be attending her ninth consecutive year this summer. In the future she plans to go to college, and hopes to spend part of her life living in Israel. Sophie will continue to write for the rest of her life, and dreams that in her lifetime her writing will comfort and inspire someone.
