About Our Guest
Since Sofia was born, she has enjoyed being outside. Her parents had always supported her curiosity for the world. Because she is homeschooled between Oregon and the Czech Republic, she’s had time to learn, wonder, and pour over educational films and documentaries. Sofia was only three years old when she made her first documentary about horned lizards for her family.
Sofia created “SofiasSpotlight” when she was just seven years old. She transferred her show to Instagram where she found her audience. Earlier this year, Sofia’s got her dream volunteer job at High Desert Museum, a Smithsonian’s affiliate, where she playfully educates visitors at the Living History. In the future, Sofia hopes to have her own full-length documentary show.

What Our Guest Talked About
Sofia discussed how she informed and educated other students in her homeschooling group and people in general before she went online. Sofia said that she’s very comfortable talking to groups, but when she went on her mom’s Facebook account, she found only adults. She moved her show to Instagram and found a community of like-minded kids closer to her age. People see and like and comment on her videos and Sofia is quite proud that she has organically grown her followers to over 600. Her goal is to have 1,000 followers by next spring.
