Meet Her Campus Gonzaga’s newest member and fantastic author and creator, Sophia Maggio! Through her writing, Sophia has proven her love for adventure and Gonzaga! With a smile that lights up a room, Sophia is a person you should get to know.
Age/Year: 18/ Freshman
Hometown: Everett, WA
Major/Minor: Double-major in Psychology (research concentration) and Art with a Leadership Studies minor
Wise Words: “Tomorrow is a new day, and today is already tomorrow.” I said this to my roommate recently after she had a rough day, only to realize that it was one in the morning.
Real wise words: “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25
Best Binge-Watch: I’m not a big TV person, but I was really into Lost for a while (4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42!!!)
Dream Job: Occupational therapist working with elderly patients, freelance artist on the side. Possibly a tattoo artist on the side as well, but I’m not a fan of needles and I don’t have any tattoos, nor do I plan to get any, so… Maybe I would just design the tattoos.
Go-To Insta Filter: I’m super bad about updating my Insta and haven’t posted anything since last June! But I do like the black-and-white filter! Simple and classy.
Perfect Pizza: Deep-dish with not a lot of cheese (I don’t really like cheese… but I like bread), lots of veggies and pesto. Maybe white sauce… depends on the day.
Favorite Thing About GU: Everyone is so supportive and kind – especially when you most need it. I also love Jundt and my professors.
– Favorite word: verisimilitude
– Favorite thing to draw (at the moment): Dog noses
If you see Sophia around, make sure to say hello! She is a wonderful part of our team already. Plus, if you need help picking out a tattoo, she’s your girl!
