Sophia has a B.A. from Clark University where she studied Political Science with a concentration in American Politics and Geography with a specialization in Urban Economic Development. A native of Boston, Sophia spent a semester studying at American University where she took classes, interned at the US Department of Education, and fell in love with DC. Sophia enjoys classical ballet, discovering neighborhood restaurants, Shouts and Murmurs in the New Yorker, and porches with a great view. In DC she hopes to get involved volunteering, survive the humidity, and finally jog around the mall at least once (or so she tells herself).
