I am 15 years old and was born to Nigerian parents in the South Bronx. I am also a sophomore at Loyola School. I love debating and Model UN. I have founded a club called “Girl-Up in Male-Dominated Fields,” with a United Nations program. Outside of school, I tutor students at my mosque and locally. As the NYC girl I am, I love exploring; science and learning about various diseases, economics and learning about cost and benefit. Coding also has been a newfound interest of mine; the way we are wired compared to computers is fascinating. I am your typical “we can do it,” “girl power,” and feminist type of girl, mainly because of the overlooked gender gap in education, which is the core problem for many current gender based issues. I value my, and girls all over the world's education, and cannot wait to see where I go in the near future!

My name is Sophia M., and I am a 17-year-old from Centennial, Colorado. A junior, I lead Arrupe (community service club) and recently co-founded a club that encourages creative storytelling. Outside of school, I’m most likely at the pool. I am a competitive swimmer who represents our team at State and U.S. Sectional competitions; butterfly is my specialty. I enjoy art, animation, and Japanese American History, and watch an inordinate number of superhero movies! My interests lie at the intersection of technology and the arts; I dream of being a Disney Imagineer who creates diverse stories and experiences through innovation.

My goals are to have my very on radio show and/or podcast, act in stage plays and the big screen, become a food truck owner to make my meals mobile, open a restaurant, have my own cookware product line, and give back to my mom for all that she sacrifices to help make my dreams and goals come true.

I am a 17-year-old from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For half of my life, I was deafeningly shy. (My mom even created a toothbrush named Worrywart for me to squeeze when anxious). But my third-grade teacher helped change that. So now, much of what I do is an attempt to pass that forward—I hope to work for education and community development organizations to give everyone lasting support and agency. In the classroom, I’m a part of student council, speech and debate, racial justice, and education reform initiatives; outside the classroom, I’m a huge fan of bright crocs, random walks, and chicken sandwiches.
