Sophia Bahr is the ACHONA’s Arts and Entertainment editor and an Academy senior. This is her second year on the ACHONA staff. After school Bahr can be found practicing her forehand for AHN’s tennis team or at Academy swim practice. Bahr has a passionate interest for all things exercise, and her favorite way to relax is running on the beach or going to a yoga class. Aside from exercise, she enjoys good music, good food, and good friends with an occasional Netflix binge. History is the class she enjoys most, as she can learn about different cultures in different countries and how those things affect the world today. This year, Sophia Bahr looks forward to attending senior prom, getting accepted into college, and turning 18. She plans on studying mass communications, journalism or international business, which coincides with her passionate love of traveling and learning about the world. Bahr is very excited to be part of the ACHONA as a senior editor and hopes to help bring the school newspaper to reach its full potential.
