Sophie Liu is 13 years old and an 8th grader at Campus Middle School. Her favorite subject is math. Sophie is a gymnast and has been doing competitive Rhythmic Gymnastics for 2 years. Apart from gymnastics, she enjoys writing, painting, and editing. Her idea of using her free time includes editing old videos and/or recent videos, or dancing. Sophie enjoys editing because she can take a normal video, change, and add different elements to make it completely unique. She also very much enjoys dancing because in dancing there’s so much creativity. Sophie is thrilled to have the opportunity to help spread that creativity and spirit to others.
