Sophia

Hi, my name is Sophia and I live in San Diego. I am a freshman in high school. I love dance and am on my dance team at school in addition to dancing at my studio. I also enjoy playing piano and singing. I like being adventurous and value spending time with family and friends.  

Currently, I have a 44-degree thoracic curve. I was diagnosed when I was 9 years old. Ever since then, I have worn a brace to school and as much as I can which is about 18 hours a day. I practice Schroth physical therapy and I am hoping my curve will stabilize or even improve.  

I am looking forward to getting more involved in Curvy Girls to help empower myself, as well as other girls with scoliosis.  It is nice to know that we are not alone and to be able to help and support each other on our journeys.
