Why Sophia wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I have never personally been affected by childhood cancer, or known anyone who has had to deal with it, but I know it’s a struggle. I know it’s hard, but all of these children are so strong to fight through everyday and every single one of them inspire me and always will. I’ve been dancing since I was 3, and it’s always been my passion. To have an opportunity to make a change with dancing and make in impact in something so much bigger than me, is absolutely incredible. I am incredibly grateful to have a healthy body, but not everybody is, and I would like to do the most with what I have been blessed with.
