BA Ethnomusicology, Minor Food Studies and Global Health
Sophia serves as a student representative for the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music’s Ethnomusicology department and is also a co-facilitator of the Ethnomusicology Undergraduate Student Organization. She is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist who specializes in jazz saxophone and is also trained in classical piano, clarinet, flute, and — upon beginning her studies at UCLA — sitar. In addition to studying music at UCLA, she is also a double-minor in Food Studies and Global Health, as she is passionate about agriculture and how it relates to global restoration. When she isn’t playing music or spending time gardening, she’s probably baking vegan desserts, doing yoga, or working to fight food insecurity and food waste at UCLA.
