Sophia Minaya
Region VI Chair

Sophia Minaya is a rising Junior at the University of California Irvine studying Computer Science and Engineering.

Sophia is the 2017-2018 Region Six Chairperson. During her Freshman year she served as the Southern California Zone Chairperson. Sophia believes that you must lift as you rise and NSBE leadership was one of the ways she felt that she could do so. NSBE gave Sophia a sense of identity and purpose upon entering college and this is something that she hopes she can share throughout her term.

Sophia’s favorite quote is “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” - Thomas Edison
