Sophia is an undergraduate student at the University at Buffalo where she is majoring in Political Science, and is interested in pursuing graduate education in law. As an immigrant she is concerned with the rights of refugees, and how they are treated. In her studies, she aims to focus on international law and intends to work with immigrants. Prior to starting in the lab, Sophia worked as a youth leader for the Massachusetts Avenue Project, a local nonprofit organization, where her involvement in the community events such as the People’s Food Movement connected her to UB’s Food Lab. While in the lab she hopes to gain research skills to prepare for graduate school.
