Hey queens! I’m Sophia LaFleur (they/she) and I’m a senior. This is my first year writing for The Evanstonian (late to the game, I know), and I have only written for the Opinion section so far but I may branch out. The Evanstonian has been a great way for me to ask for and use the feedback I get on my writing, which has helped me perfect my personal statement college essay. I work at Union Squared (the pizza place, come visit me!) and occasionally babysit. In my free time, I play the cello, make collage pages, cook and experiment with my newfound love of painting my nails.

Opinion | It’s not easy being green: How perception shapes our reality

Sophia LaFleur, Staff Writer September 23, 2022
