A Brazilian-American-Pole, Sophia was born in Rio de Janeiro and brought up mostly in US (with brief stints in Guinea-Bissau and St Petersburg, Russia, as well). Although she misses the beaches of Brazil, London is most definitely home for this former New Yorker and recent MBA. In her spare time she loves running on Regent's Canal, travelling, and exploring east London street art. As a former ballerina, she’s passionate about the performing arts, food, all things Latin America, plus she enjoys reading up on the universe. Massage is also her guilty pleasure, which she studies as a hobby.
