Hi! My name is Sofia and I’m really excited to be working as The Gateway’s Art Director for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. I’m going into my fifth and final year of working towards my Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications Design. In my spare time, I like to take care of my plants, annoy my cat Napoleon, dabble in film photography and tend to my nearly unhealthy obsession with noodle soup.
