Who Am I?

Hey, I’m Sophie!

I am a first year medical student at the University of British Columbia. I’m also a biology lover, a health enthusiast, a recreational athlete, and a foodie. I love to ski in the winter, to hike in the summer, and to go to the gym and to yoga year-round. I also love cooking, baking and spending time with family and friends.

I am fascinated by living organisms and how many different working pieces there are to make a body run smoothly. Seriously! There are trillions of cells in the human body that are each made up of HUNDREDS of trillions of atoms that ALL work together at a million miles an hour to make sure our bodies are working and thriving.

I am also passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and treating my body well—both physically and mentally! I try to listen to my body and eat nutritious whole foods when it comes to nourishing myself, to exercise effectively and safely, and to keep my mind feeling energized and sharp. Sometimes, it’s hard to know how to stay healthy in this way.
