Sofia A. Nelson-FereziImmigrant Advocate
Sofia is currently attending UC San Diego, working towards a degree in International Political Science. Growing up in the binational megaregion of San Diego-Tijuana, Sofia has been exposed to the diverse cultural and political dynamics across both sides of the border. This has shaped her perspective in topics such as urban development and immigration, and the role that policy plays in these areas. Sofia is currently working as a research assistant at the US Immigration Policy Center where she works with data analysis for policy making. In her free time, Sofia enjoys film photography, traveling and spending time with her cat Cleo.
