Sofia was born and raised in El Salvador, but now calls Ontario her permanent home.
Sofia graduated from Sheridan College’s Illustration and Design program. Her work focuses on story-telling and amplifying immigrant voices through art and design. Her saturated palettes and whimsical worlds seek to create an invigorating and inviting worldview through colourfully balanced, visually provocative pieces.
At GSL, Sofia coordinates the lab’s day to day communications by developing engaging content for the newsletter and social media channels, support the team’s internal and external communications, and monitors performance metrics.
In her spare time, Sofia volunteers with Canada’s EndFGM organization. Her hobbies include playing kalimba, learning new recipes and playing video games.
