Hi! I'm: Sophia @Esymai
I'm an: Illustrator/Designer/Creative Person/Human Being
I'm a: Scorpio
I live in: Woodside, Queens
My fav spot in LA is: Lamille Coffee - My friend and Photographer Ja Tecson lives in the neighborhood so that's usually our go-to spot whenever I'm in the neighborhood.
A brand I'm really diggin right now is: My favorite brand has always been Made Me Clothing. It's a small independent brand by Erin Magee. The clothing line doesn't drop every season, but when there are new releases they're always to die for!
I think the babes with the best style are: Rita Ora and Rihanna! Who doesn't like them, they make everything look good.
Song I can't get out of my head today is: It's So Cold in the D - just went to Detroit this past weekend.
What inspired her to start:
I've always enjoyed drawing. What really kicked off my interest to turn it into a career was college. I went to Parsons School of Design and learned about the commercial world of art and design. Opportunities, commerce and more.
Her advice to you:
Dress like how you want to be treated. Act like ow you want to be respected. In a business environment women have to work 3x as hard to gain respect. It's such a male-dominated society. Be humble, be gracious.
P.S. Stay tuned for new projects, updates and announcements via Instagram and Twitter!
