Sophia Williams is on a mission…
to mentor and inspire future leaders
“There are such high academic expectations and an intense curriculum at Harvey Mudd, but in SI, you struggle through it together, and that creates such a strong bond within the SI community,” Williams said.
When she was a rising junior, Williams was chosen to serve as the program’s head mentor. In that role, she trained mentors to become leaders and good communicators and led a community outreach program that brought a day of science activities to a group of 7- to 14-year-old students. “The experience was so much fun, and it taught me so much about leadership,” she said.
She serves in a variety of other leadership roles across campus, including as an aide for the Future Achievers in Science and Technology program, as a mentor for Atwood Dorm and as a Dean of Students (DOS) Muchacho. As a Muchacho, Williams helps plan fun, relaxing student activities to balance the rigors of academic life.
