Sofia Nevala is a Junior at John Adams High School and is looking forward to contributing to The Tower this year. As a lacrosse player for the South Bend Bears girl's team, she also enjoys reading, cooking, traveling and watching various sports. Sofia can always be found at almost every one of Notre Dame’s home hockey games and up at nine AM on fall Saturday’s watching her favorite TV show “College GameDay”on ESPN

Sofia’s Mom describes her as a “hardworking, kind, independent, good friend who has a remarkable memory for all things related to sports especially the NHL and Notre Dame Hockey. It is stunning to look in her closet and see thirteen hockey jerseys.”


Some of her greatest accomplishments include: helping start the SB Bears Girls High School Lacrosse team, graduating from Good Shepherd Montessori School where she spent eight years of her life, and learning to play piano at the age of four as well as the violin in the first grade. She continued to play both instruments through her freshman year of high school before deciding to simply play for her own enjoyment. In the decade she studied music she also learned to read music as well as teach herself to play the ukulele. She is an unapologetic country music fan though she gets much criticism from her friends because of it. 


At the end of high school, Sofia hopes to complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma and then move on to college. She doesn’t quite know what she wants to study but knows she would like to eventually work in the sports industry. In the meantime, she continues to add to her extensive collection of hockey jerseys. Sofia hopes her love for hockey and music will model through her articles and is excited to share her love with others.
