This year Sophia Skelly (Class of ’10) is spending a gap year before college. She is chronicling her time through an insightful and educational online blog entitled “The Great Perhaps.” Skelly believes the experiences of her gap year will better prepare her for college and for her future. Beginning with a whirlwind European tour this past summer, Skelly’s adventurous travels have also taken her to India and Costa Rica. When not abroad, Skelly has spent time interning at the Houston Chronicle. Skelly’s blog not only highlights Skelly’s talented journalistic abilities, but also unveils her spirit as a visionary activist. We are excited to see how her year continues to unfold and to see what is next for Sophia Skelly. Take a look at her blog at https://sskellygapyear.wordpress.com.
