At any given time, there are a handful of motivated college students and recent graduates in the D+P internship program. We recently connected with Sophia for a quick Q&A session. Read on below to learn more about Sophia!
Give us a little bit of background about yourself!
I am a senior at Temple University, studying advertising and concentrating in copywriting. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and plan to stay in the area after graduation. During my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, spending time with family and visiting new restaurants in the city. I also enjoy curling up on the couch with a great book.
Describe yourself in three words.
I would describe myself as resilient, independent and curious. I am always willing and inspired to keep trying until I succeed, enjoy taking the lead on projects and have always been interested in creative expression and exploration.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be a veterinarian because of my love for animals.
What’s something few people knew about you, but you wish they did?
I am a very fast swimmer! I was on the swim team when I was younger and everyone always seemed surprised at how quick and natural of a swimmer I was.
If you could give a piece of advice to your high school/younger self, what would it be?
To surround myself with people who make me happy and people who I am comfortable enough to be myself around.
