Sophia first began her Brockton career in Grade 10. Since then, Sophia believes that Brockton has encouraged her to be the first person to speak up when needed. Sophia has been especially inspired by Dr. Trotman through her French classes and her engagement with the Film Club, and believes that she has nurtured her communication skills and provided many thought-provoking discussions. These experiences have led Sophia to hold the position of Director of Communications on the Community Action Team for Health and Wellbeing (CAT-HW).
If Sophia could give the younger Brockton students one piece of advice, it would be to never be afraid to ask for help. She states that “Brockton is a school run by the most compassionate group of staff, all of which are working to support your success. Ask questions, or for extra time outside of class to revise, and visit the counseling offices when you’re having a bad day. Every effort will be made to benefit you, and make your years at Brockton not only enjoyable, but grounded in developing positive habits and social skills you’ll apply later in life.”
Upon graduation, Sophia plans to study Nuclear Engineering, with the hopes to provide nuclear power to rural Indigenous communities in Canada, aiding in the efforts to decolonize and fight climate change.
