When I’m not Sophya-ing, you’ll find me: writing my novel, making music, or working on a video game prototype. When I’m not creating, I’m reading, or playing video games.

People always say I’m: radically transparent. (people don’t actually say those words, but bear with me) I don’t have secrets. There’s not a thing in my life I wouldn’t tell a stranger. It’s incredibly freeing.

The most surprising thing about me: I have Muscular Dystrophy. Fortunately, it’s not fatal, and it’s given me a compassionate and humble world view. You don’t realize the value of the little things in life until you can’t do them anymore. It’s a huge reason of why I am who I am.

How I want to impact the world: I want to encourage others to share their lives with the people around them. I think if we all didn’t have secrets, the world would look much different. I think that, by extension, people would see that everyone has fears and weaknesses, be happier with who they are.

More from me: @eddywalda on Twitter. It’s the only thing that’s updated atm. 😅
