Senior Sophia Comas is the Online Editor-in-Chief of MHSMentor.com. As the Online Editor-in-Chief, Comas manages all of the stories written and uploads them to the website.

Comas has been apart of The Mentor since she was a sophomore when she enrolled in 21st Century Journalism. During December of that semester, she became the Features Editor where she continued to pursue her passion for writing.

“I'm the kind of person who is very unafraid of confrontation, so when things are messy in here, I still enjoy it,” Comas said. “I love what I do here. I love being able to write, I love being able to take pictures and I love interviewing people.”

After her work as the Features Editor, Comas returned her junior year as the Sports Editor for The Mentor where she learned how to get used to being in a leadership role. Her goals for this year are to create an award-winning news website as well as ensuring that she’s doing her best by her fellow staff members. 

“I want to be able to establish myself as a leader for the classroom,” Comas said. “I want other members of staff to trust that I can get us there.”

When she’s not working for The Mentor, Comas likes to spend time with her dog Ruby, either eating chocolate or watching “The Office.”
