The Chant

Sophia Mackey
Oh, hey. Didn’t see you there. I’m Sophia Mackey. I’m new to The Chant. When I’m not plotting ways to destroy sexism, I’m drawing weird faces and listening to music. When I’m not doing that, I’m writing short stories or binge-watching Girls/Parks & Rec/American Horror Story/Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. And when I’m not doing that, I’m on youtube for days at a time watching band interviews with my cat, DW. And now when I’m not doing that, I’ll be writing articles and drawing cartoons for North Cobb High School! Well, that’s all, folks. It’s been nice talking with you. Go on. Git.
