Hello! I'm Sofia

This past May, I graduated from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in cultural anthropology and a minor in speech, language, and hearing sciences, and I am currently working toward a career path in A&R in the Los Angeles area.

 

I hope to work in a position that will allow me to connect my passions for music, language, and culture in a way that creates meaningful change in my own life and the lives of others around me.
