Good day! my name is Sophieja and loved to be called as Sophie. Sophie means ‘wisdom’ in Greek. I’m basically 21 and I am Capricorn. This year and I have been jumbling my studies and my acting career in between. For the time being, I am basically focusing on my Bachelor Degree in Mass Communication at Inti International University.
I’ve recently graduated from my Diploma in Mass Comm as well. Took my first breath at Subang Jaya Medical Centre, but most of time, me and my family moved around. Currently, we’re residing in a beautiful suburb Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
What inspires your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
My fashion style is inspired based on minimalism and elegancy as I believe in ‘Less is more’. During casual time, I would go for Baddie and streetwear style.
I normally shop at H&M, Zara, Monki and even Cotton On. I don’t really prefer online shopping when it comes to buying clothes due its size inaccuracy. On the other hand, I love thrifting as well. Thrift fashion is basically sustainable and way more ethical.
Which is your preferred side to take selfies?
I don’t normally take selfies, I am much of whole figure pics. But well probably from higher angles of selfies?
How do you like to spend your free time?
I love to kill my free time with reading books. Mainly like self-improvement, self-love books. Sometimes, I would spend time reading articles in Thought Catalog.com. Besides, I would organize a self-photoshoot for myself as well!
If you could travel back in time, is there something you will like to experience or change?
Well, I would love to redo my whole high-school experience. I was in MRSM, an elite boarding school that is science based. A lot of things is restricted and mostly conservative. I am forced to wear or do things that I am not used or even like at. I can’t really express myself to the finest. I don’t find anyone that is like-minded much neither.
It was tough and challenging. I was getting pressure not just from peers but even academically. I ended up leaving the place and hopped to a new school. Some things I might have filtered here, overall, highschool was a traumatic experience for me. Basically the pain that I’ve gotten from there is the source I use to transform, glow up to where I am now.
I would probably make it different by not going into boarding school, and enjoy my time on normal high-school.
What 3 things do you love to do in the city you live in?
The city I live in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan is known as Suburb. Balancy between city and nature. First thing I’ve always love to do is go hiking at Melati Hill. Second thing is going bowling at Nilai Sport Complex or simply heading to KLIA and watch planes take off/touch down. And sometimes, we would randomly take a short trip to Port Dickson beach and treating it like how KL people would spontaneously head to Genting Highland.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of an outdoors person are you?
Would say 10 ! I am definitely an outdoor person! I really enjoy hiking so much. At times when I would go swimming. Plus, every evening I would head to my condominium garden and meditate. I would even go for walks during night time but for safety reasons, of course only in my residency compound.
What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you?
It isn’t much funny but more likely silly and creepy. Back then when I was on film shooting, this man faked his phone camera that it was faulty. He sought my help to take pictures of the crews and everyone. I naively agreed. Indeed, we exchange numbers because he asked me to sent all the pictures to him. So we did, and that’s where things got fishy. He started to text me things that I’m not comfortable like asking my status, asking me out.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Sophie. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
For me, sexy is universal and subjective. It is not necessarily defined as showing so much skin or how society always standardizes it as seductive or obscenic. Intelligence is sexy, confidence is sexy, that Lamborgini Aventador that passes by is sexy, a gentleman in their Ralph Lauren suit is sexy! And there’s nothing sexier of an individual that dares to be themselves!
