Get to know Sophia a little better with our Q&A below.

Hey Sophia! Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Hey there! I’d like to consider myself part cat, part human. I love to create art in all different ways. My mission is to make the world a more animal-friendly place where they can thrive just as much as we do!

What’s a typical day in the life for you like?

I wake up and hit the gym in the morning when I’m the most energetic. When I’m not shooting; I can film a YouTube video, research the newest vegan beauty products and spend quality time with my two amazing cats. Oh, and did I mention grocery shopping for food, cooking food and thinking of when I can have more food? I love food.

What do you like to do to keep fit?

Naturally, I am very thin so weight training is key for me. I workout to build mass instead of intense cardio to lose weight. Some of my favorite workouts include the leg press and some good old-fashioned sit-ups!

What is your favourite go-to recipe at home?

I absolutely love a good pasta and salad! I make a tomato sauce with mushrooms and spinach, and pour it over some pasta made from black beans. It’s so easy and I get tons of my daily nutrients from this meal.

Makeup tips for girls in a rush?

The best tip I can give is to always have that ‘fresh faced’ look. By cleansing well, moisturizing, and keeping the foundation minimal; the face looks so pretty in the daylight. I like to do a simple messy bun, foundation mixed with moisturizer, and lip gloss. I stay away from powder in the daytime.

Words you live by?

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” -Gandhi

Something that changed your life?

I can say the most pivotal moment in my life is when I watched the footage behind the food industry. Between the documentaries, short films and YouTube footage; my life was changed for the better. I’ve never had such a clear conscious before. Life has so much more meaning and I’ve learned to respect life in all forms.

And finally… your guilty pleasure?

Let’s end this questionnaire on a tasty note! Hmm, I’d have to say my guilty pleasure is my homemade Krispy Kreme donuts. I used to be SUCH a Krispy Kreme fan that going Vegan meant I HAD to learn how to make my own. After countless mistakes, burnt donuts, and hours in the kitchen; I’ve conquered the vegan Krispy Kreme donut. Life is good!
