Sofía was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. At the age of thirteen she moved to Doha, Qatar, where she learned English and got an introduction to French and many other languages, cultures, religions, and traditions from all over the globe. Once she graduated high school in Qatar, she moved back to Colombia to study Modern Languages and Business Translation at Universidad EAN; there she reinforced her Spanish and English grammar and language skills, and learned French and Italian.
She has lived in Chicago for almost 4 years, during which she has worked as a healthcare interpreter in multiple hospitals of the city and its suburbs, an educational interpreter, a translator, and a Spanish teacher assistant.
Sofia highly believes that as you become fluent in another language, you find qualities and personality traits about yourself that you did not know you have; to some extent, like having another personality in that other language. Additionally she is proof that learning other languages helps improve concentration and memory.
Besides her passion for languages, she describes herself as an environmentalist and has an immense love for animals, dancing and acting. She is learning how to play the bass guitar and loves to watch true crime shows and anything related to the cosmos.
