Last weekend, I chose to join a new society. People who know me are aware that the cold and I are not the best of friends. I was in Namibia this summer and found the swimming pool water too cold to go in!… Read More
So a little about me: I am Sophia and I am currently in my second year studying Journalism and Communications.
