Sophia is passionate about gender equality, global sustainability, and education. Throughout high school she was involved in Multicultural Alliance, as well as other various service projects, which have taken her from a suburban home through inner-city classrooms and all the way to the hills of Kenya. Her goals for the year are to explore the intricacies of Senegalese culture and to broaden her understanding of others, ultimately finding herself in this ever-expanding world. Sophia's favorite quote is one of Kurt Vonnegut. "And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, and how much was mine to keep."
