Motivation

A traveller and passionate about art and humanities, she deeply enjoys how Students Against COVID-19 connected people from all around the planet under the same values, regarding the movement as a small example of how her ideal world would be. Being eclectic and curious, she truly can not say no to something she believes in.

Goals

Ana Sofia hopes that SAC may establish itself as a leading organization in giving voice to students and speak up for global causes, without losing its multicultural, respectful and dynamic soul.
