Scratch Paper

Sophia Diaz
Hello, there, Scratch Paper readers! I’m Sophia Diaz, a Senior at Warren and Co-Editor of Scratch Paper. In addition to my passion for writing, I’m a proud feminist; Emma Watson and Tracee Ellis Ross are my idols. Following their lead, I always aim to leave school assemblies with a sore throat due to our excelling female students, as I strive to lift them up in cheers of solidarity. Overall, my dream for society is one in which everyone is respected, loved, and treated fully as equals. Thus, human rights and societal issues are some of my favorite topics to write about.

Furthermore, I’m extremely passionate about music. My primary instrument is the clarinet, which I play in Warren’s Symphonic Band I and Marching Band; I also get jazzy with the alto sax in Warren’s Jazz Ensemble I. Such ardor for music has led me to a prospective major in Music Education. I am determined to maintain my passion for social justice and serve as representation for my Hispanic culture in this field.

On that note, I am Honduran and Norwegian, which are just about the most opposite ethnicities you could find. I admire the familial importance and personability I learned from my Hispanic relatives. However, I would not be myself if I hadn’t also witnessed the unparalleled diligence of my Norwegian family. My cultures have completely different perspectives to offer, and I’m so grateful to be able to learn from both.

Fun Fact: This Is Us is the best show on TV, and if you haven’t seen it, you. are. not. living. your. best. life.

Finally, I hope you all enjoy this year’s installments of Scratch Paper, the voice of Warren!
