Hi! My name is Sophia and I am currently a student at the College of Staten Island double majoring in English 7-12 Education and Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies. My dream job is to be a teacher and provide students with a comfortable space to encourage learning and growth in addition to critical thinking skills that can be applied in all aspects of a student's life, not just in a classroom. I have interned with the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust as a lead tour guide as well as an assistant tour guide at the Children's Museum of the Arts. I love creative forms of art! Dancing, writing, sketching, and painting are some of my chosen forms of creative expression that I am passionate about. I majored in Visual Arts at my high school and have an Arts endorsed diploma from NYC for my grade on the Art Regents. I also am a reader- my favourite genre of literature is young adult fiction. I love to write prose and creative nonfiction memoirs.
