Sofia teamed up with a group of her peers to offer a class each Saturday to assimilate Syrian refugee children into American culture and academia. Sofia assisted in creating curriculums to teach Syrian children math, English, and social skills. She also suggested concentrating her school’s annual Advent fundraiser on the Syrian refugee community.
