Sophie (also known as Sophie B-D) joined YSTV in the autumn of 2019, and quickly got involved in many productions and social events. She is best known for her contribution to Quarantine Weekly, where she featured in every episode (to date), and didn't do too badly. In the 2020 elections, Sophie was voted in as Social Secretary. Sophie can most commonly be found in the YSTV studio, Goodricke College, Courtyard or at home in Essex. She ia an OG member of the group known as Firstyearsthatarecool and a proud member if Trolley Team, but not a fan of plugs.
