The Golden Blue

Sophia Diaz
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens... these are a few of my favorite things. Just kidding. In all seriousness, I love music in all its forms, even when it's not exactly "my type"; I can always appreciate what someone sees in it, how something in it impassions them, makes them sing. This love for music has manifested itself in my extensive involvement in band, where I play clarinet for Symphonic Band I and alto sax in Jazz Ensemble here at Warren. Outside of band, I also dabble in singing as well as playing guitar and piano. I plan to major in Music Education and attend... a college. Hey, I'm a junior, I've still got time to decide. When I'm not blasting a metronome and killing my chops, I enjoy drawing, reading, and eating- like any red-blooded American.

As I am half latina, I am also partial to the lively beat of merengue and salsa, the sounds of which bring me off my chair and to my feet in a flash. This side of me is all thanks to my Honduran father, who came to the US at the young age of 16. However, I also harbor a love for classical music and lefse, as my mother is Norweigan. I love the contrast of polite, timid, traditional Norwegians and wild, loud, big-haired Hondurans- I get to pick and choose from the best of both worlds in deciding who I am.

This is my first year in The Golden Blue, and I can't wait to share my voice through the written (or typed) word. Shout out to Jessica Lim for introducing me to the club!
