Sophia Winston

UPenn Campus Coordinator

Sophia is Penn’s JHP campus coordinator. She works with students to plan events throughout the semester and engages new members to get involved. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016 with a double major in Urban Studies and Spanish, minoring in Portuguese and Latin American Studies. Before JHP, Sophia was involved in Pitt’s chapter of Challah for Hunger and studied abroad twice in Brazil, first in Rio de Janeiro and then in Fortaleza. She was an online journalist covering current events in Latin America for the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Latin American Studies for two years, and also worked closely with students as a Portuguese tutor and TA. Outside of work you can find her training for half marathons, spending time with her family in the suburbs, and enjoying the outdoors. She loves that JHP gives students an opportunity to get involved with Judaism on their own terms and alongside their friends.
