My Bio


¡Hola! Me llamo Sophia! I am currently 16 years old and I will be going to Argentina for the 2018-2019 school year. I live with my mom and stepmom (Lori and Cathy), younger sister (Summer), two dogs (Red Dog and Yukon), and my cat (Tinkerbell) in Alpharetta GA. I’m currently learning Spanish outside of school, so hopefully I’ll know a little by the time I go! I go to school at Chattahoochee High where I am active in my Musical Theater and Orchestra programs. I’m currently in two musicals; Follies and Clue the Musical. I love to sing, dance, play violin, guitar, and ukulele. Outside of music, my passions are writing, drawing, and going on adventures! Going to Argentina for a full school year will really be one of the biggest adventures I’ve ever had. My mom went to Brazil as an exchange student from 86-87, and when I was younger she always talked about her experiences and how much she loved the program, so when we found out that Rotary had started the program here in Georgia, we both became very excited! Hopefully this starts a family tradition that we can experience for generations. This is an adventure I really can’t wait to start, and I look forward to learning all I can about this different culture, and about myself! ¡Chau!
