Sofia Delgado

Hi there! My name is Sofia Delgado, and I’m currently in 6th grade at Valley View ISD. At school, I’m involved in a variety of activities, including UIL academics and student council, where I hold the position of vice president. I’m also a member of the Mariachi band and love playing the violin while singing and learning new music. Outside of school, I’m a proud member of the Girl Scouts of South Texas, where I work hard to help my community and develop my leadership skills. In my free time, I enjoy reading graphic novels, listening to music, and sketching my own fashion designs. My ultimate dream is to become a famous fashion designer, study in Paris, and create my own line of fashion that represents my unique creativity and style.
