Sophie Lee CC’22

Hi! My name is Sophie and I am a junior in Columbia College studying History and Creative Writing. Being from Seattle, Washington, I love hiking, traveling, and spending time in nature. I like to bring that same spirit of exploration to my studies and goals as a student. Spending a summer at Reid Hall through the Columbia Summer in Paris program was an amazing way to indulge my love for French language and culture while still working towards my degree requirements. I particularly cherished the many opportunities to meet students with similar interests and experience cultural immersion in a Columbia context. We took trips to Lyon and Normandie, walked for miles around the city, and visited so many museums together. I came back home as a much more confident and independent person, willing to invest more in connections made in an academic setting. I would love to chat about my experience as well as art, writing, food, or any questions you might have!
