She volunteered during her first year as an interpreter at her law school’s Immigration Rights Clinic and became the Clinical Director’s Research Assistant in late 2021. Sofia developed a particular passion for working with the clinic’s juvenile clients and interned for Safe Passage Project in the summer of 2022. She in thrilled to return to SPP as Justice Fellow and serve the immigrant youth of New York City.
