Introduction

Hello! As mentioned in the “About” section of this blog, I’m Sophia Redfern. I’m about to start my third year at University of California Santa Cruz (go slugs!) and am double majoring in History of Art & Visual Culture and Literature. I am 20 years old and live in lovely Santa Cruz with my wonderful boyfriend, Carlos, and our fantastic roommate, Jared. I have been vegan for 3 years and counting. I do not consume any sort of animal product, wear animal products, or use products that have been tested on animals or contain animal ingredients.
