Hello, I am Sophia Lopez! I am currently a junior at Port of Los Angeles High School. I am elated to join this new community with hopes of motivating our audience to stay engaged in the world around us. I am currently still considering pathways for my future, but I enjoy educating the people around me by listening to the stories and experiences of others. At my school I am the co-founder of the Black Student Union Club to help black students and allies find comfort in our school community. I think it is very important that we constantly stay aware of our surroundings and notice how our lives intertwine. I am excited to be working on Stay Rad because it is a wonderful outlet for teen voices and point of views to be heard and explored. I love sailing, baking, making countless playlists, and traveling!
