We welcome Sophia Valdez to NOW Open Studio as the Blog Writer and Editor. Having an intense passion for sharing knowledge and creating accessible content, Sophia is eager to present the projects, programs and events NOW hosts to the public and provide emotional insight to the beautiful artist and creative world NOW presents.
Sophia will be a 2021 PSU graduate with a double major in English & Spanish. While she enjoys reading early English poetry and Spanish postmodern literature, Sophia also seeks to deepen her understanding of language and its effect on society by studying translation and improving her Spanish speaking skills. When she’s not listening to Hispanic pop music or writing sonnets, Sophia spends her time crying over children’s movies, particularly those directed by Hayao Miyazaki, and appreciating their incredible storytelling techniques. She also plays ukulele and happily pets neighborhood cats. We are excited to have her on our team.
