Meet Sonja!

Another chilly day on campus, another Medusa to meet. After our wave of distribution this week to get copies of The Laughing Medusa back around campus for your reading pleasure, we hope your interest has been piqued in seeing what badass councilwoman is due next for an introduction.We won’t make you wait any longer—read on for this week’s Meet the Council feature!

To recap, our magazine is edited, designed, published, and promoted by a small group of BC’s undergraduate women each year, and we count ourselves lucky to attract some of the smartest and savviest snake-ladies that Boston College has to offer. Putting together a full publication each semester is a labor of love, and this year we’re turning the spotlight to the group of 13 awesome women who make it possible. Check back all semester to meet the full council, head here if you missed getting to know Jordan last week, and read on right now to meet the fabulous Sonja Goldman!

Sonja 1

Sonja is new to the Medusa Editorial Council this year, and you’ll be seeing some of her handiwork here on the blog as she steps into her Digital Editor role this spring. She is a junior English major who loves poetry and currently serves as both EMT and member services coordinator for Boston College EMS. If she looks familiar, you might’ve spotted Sonja on the field this fall as well–she’s on the BC Cheerleading Team! Here’s a few more facts about Sonja:

Favorite literary quote?

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.”
“Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver

Personal female icon?

My female icon is my mom! She is able to balance being a college professor, amazing marathon runner, and incredible mother. She inspires me every day with her love.

Where you can find her outside of the Medusa:

Either in the Plex at cheer practice or working as an EMT for Boston College EMS!
