The New Editors to the Dig Questionnaire (adapted from Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire)

Annie Watson

An interview with new editor Sophia Elfrink!

When and where are you happiest?

I am the happiest when I am with my family, 100%. In terms of location, it varies. I could spend hours in an art museum or exploring a city. But as an Oregonian, I also love being outdoors. I have a goal to visit as many National Parks as I can! I also like to sleep.

What do you most miss about being together at OES?

I miss seeing friends and filling the OES space together. 

Who are your heroes in real life?

Wow, there are so many! Aside from my family, I would have to say, Marie Curie. When I was younger I spent a whole month researching her life. Not only was she the first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize, she was the first person to win two! Marie was a trailblazer for the women’s movement and proved that women could pursue a career in STEM. Also, my middle name is Marie.

What are your hopes and dreams for the Dig next year?

I am so excited to be a part of the Dig next year! There are a lot of important events taking place in the OES community and the world around us. The Dig provides us a way to stay connected and share our stories.

What is the quality you most admire in a person?

I admire a person who has respect for others. To me a respectful person approaches the world with compassion, is non-judgemental, and sees value in every single person, despite differences.
