Sofija is nothing short of a force to be reckoned with. She remains one of the most positive and ebullient personalities I’ve ever had the chance to meet, all while juggling graduate school, a job, and non-stop community activism. While I was best acquainted with her through the three successful anti Bill C-51 protests she organized, what struck me the most about Sofija is her continued emphasis on acknowledging volunteer support as the cornerstone to all of her efforts. She has been an inspiration and a figure from which I have learned much about living my politics.
