Rachel Kim is a fifth year English Literature student who has learned that the future is less intimidating if you imagine it in its underwear.
Sophia Murray is a second year student in UBC’s faculty of Arts and is applying to the BFA program in April. She has explored many different artistic media but has recently found her niche in digital media, creating photo-manipulated images and video installation works. She was named after Sophia Loren and she carries herself with a similar kind of style and grace with her own unique touch of awkwardness.

She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and now lives on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral territories of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations. She was raised to love jazz, literature, language, history, culture, curiosity, family and silliness.
Ming Wong is a fifth-year English Literature and Film Studies student interested in visual journalism. She is a former editor of The Ubyssey and her personal brand, like the university, is still under construction.
