Hello everyone! My name is Sofija and I am majoring in environmental science with an intended minor in film studies at UCLA. I am originally from Seattle, WA, but I have lived in Santa Barbara, CA for most of my life. My interest in how humans interact with the environment has led me to pursue environmental studies in college, and I plan to combine this interest with my passion for art and design. As an artist, two of my favorite mediums are painting and photography, and more recently, I’ve been interested in film. When I’m not painting, you can find me playing beach volleyball or exploring new hiking trails! Sustainability is critical in the wellbeing of our planet, and I want to educate myself so that I can share with others the importance of implementing sustainability into our life practices. In my own life, I am starting a long term goal of becoming vegetarian, and eliminating single-use plastics from my household. I’m excited to be a part of the Voiz community and learn more about how sustainability plays a role in different industries!
