Sophia Feddersen - Program Mentor
I always felt the things I learned most thoroughly and stayed the most passionate about were the things I taught myself. While I went to school for music, I taught myself how to be a graphic designer and that's now how I make a living.
As a mentor I work hard to leave space for kids to be themselves, and love giving kids the agency to make mistakes and learn to take ownership of their own lives and dreams. There's nothing better than watching kids at Hackstudio go from "I'm not sure I can do this..." to "Let me teach you how I just did this awesome thing!"
Sophia is incredibly passionate about her career as a designer and writer, so she doesn’t have much need for hobbies.
