Sofia Castells

Sofia is a gem, but before exploring her many facets, let’s get the facts down. Sofia is the ruthless first floor north RA. She craves challenge and easily satiates her appetite. She is a double major in Finance and Economics, and when she grows up she wants to be an astronaut or a fortune 500 CEO. The world is just waiting to show her that in fact, she can do both. There is not a thing that this shiny woman cannot accomplish.
