Über Sophia Tsirbas

Sophia leads on our global health work at the Global Poverty Project. A NYC native with Colombian and Greek roots, she has always considered herself a global citizen. Understanding firsthand that cross-cultural differences do not need to be divisive, she learned Mandarin, moved to China, and lived happily there for over four years. Despite her travels, she still has a bad case of wanderlust.
