SOPHIE SZEW


My silver lining of this dare I say “unprecedented” time has been the ability to connect with my foundation. As human beings, we spend so much time building ourselves up and constructing entire cities out of our endeavors that we often forget to look at our foundation and grounding, which for me have been community. I am so grateful to Sinai for being that community for so many people, and am honored to be a part of that!
