Sofia is 20 years old and lives with her parents, older brother and sister in Colorado. Aside from being a TEGA, Sofia has three jobs which keep her very busy during the week and means she often works long shifts. Because of her busy schedule, Sofia uses her days off to socialise with her friends, and often goes out to restaurants and ice cream parlours to hang out. She also likes to visit bookstores like Barnes and Noble, her favourite book shop.

“I honestly wish I had had, probably a therapist, someone to talk to about my feelings and stuff like that. I’ve never really been open to talking to my family about mental illness.”
