a chat with sofia

Q: Can you please introduce yourself?

I’m Sofia! I play Character #1 and Jamie Margolin. I’m in Grade 11 and I live in Ottawa.

Q: What does being in 12 mean to you?

For me, 12 is a space where I feel I’m able to be vulnerable and talk about issues, like climate change, that really matter to me and to be very honest about these issues. I can say what I really feel and have people understand, to take off my mask and not be judged.

Q: What’s your favourite part of the natural world?

The Northern Lights — Aurora Borealis.

And sunsets. It’s so beautiful when the different amazing colours fill the sky every night. It’s such a happy end to the day.

Q: What’s one of your specific Climate Change concerns?

A lack of hope, resulting in a lack of action. That people fail to take the actions necessary to make a difference. As a result, they just make plans and empty promises while taking little or no concrete action to address the emergency.

Q: What’s a question you would like to ask someone about Climate Change?

What do you do for climate justice? Is it enough? What do you think is enough?

Q: When the audience leaves 12, you hope they will–

Feel hopeful, inspired and see that they can do something to make a change.

Q: What’s your favourite word?
