Yulee High School
Sofia is currently a senior at Yulee High School. In her application essay she quoted from Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers:
She writes, "My death will be grand/the land will crack." This line, for me, has the greatest meaning because it highlights how much I want to do something worth more than just my own while. I want to touch the lives of thousands of people across thousands of state lines and leave cracks in the land that I walk on."
Sofia currently works for the Fernandina Beach Fire Department in Ocean Rescue. She is leaning toward study to be a flight nurse or travel trauma nurse at Florida State College Jacksonville..
