Back to



I’m Sofia. I’m from New York City but go to boarding school in Connecticut, where I just finished my sophomore year.

I’m very excited to explore Guatemala, learn about the country’s indigenous people and history, and discover the culture generally. My dad is originally from Ecuador, but my Spanish is terrible (I take French at school), so I also hope to get up to speed on that.

I love to draw, hike, ski, read, and hang out with friends. I am not much of an athlete, but I play field hockey and am a coxswain on our crew team.

See you guys soon!! I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
