Sofia Soberon

Hello! My name is Sofia Soberon, I am the new Vice President of Education. During my studies I was Student Voice Representative for the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science (FCES) for two years, before becoming Chair of Student Voice Forum. I loved these roles so much that I decided to run for VP Education and the rest is history!

In my spare time I love to go hiking and scrambling with my family. I am a huge motorsports fan (reason I studied Mechanical Engineering) and hope to one day work in Formula One.

3 things you didn't know about Sofia

  1. I am deathly allergic to chili peppers despite being mexican.
  2. I can't sunbathe. I always end up looking like a lobster.
  3. My brother and I grew up racing with Checo Perez.
