Sofia Mendes, 17, is a rising senior at Manchester (NH) Central High School. As a bookworm who indulges in both dark fantasy and meditation books, she taught her little brother to read. She bullet journals, and she helps to put up art exhibits. She finds Manchester unique, for a ski hill sits in the middle of it. Partly because she treasures having four seasons, she will be applying to schools for journalism on the East coast.
