Legal Assistant

Sofia graduated with a B.A. in International and Comparative Politics and a B.A. in History, Law, and Society from the American University of Paris. While in Paris, she interned with international organizations such as the OECD and represented her university at the Athens Democracy Forum organized by the New York Times and the UN. However, she felt called to pursue the humanitarian work with migrants in Paris she was involved in. Her thesis discussed the unique ways that nonprofits promoted migrant rights in France, and also compared American and French nonprofits’ dialogues with governments as well. Sofia grew tired of watching from abroad the worsening conditions on the border and returned home to Phoenix and joined the Florence Project in July 2019. Growing up in an immigrant household, speaking Spanish and Greek, she has always considered herself a global citizen and hopes to foster a community of cultural sensitivity. Sofia enjoys traveling, reading, and cooking for her friends and family.
