Her Interests

Sophal is a quiet person with an imaginative mind. She likes all kinds of art and creative things. She has a passion for learning. As a girl she wanted to be a painter and a fashion designer.

She graduated in graphics design studies and now works full time at Melon Rouge. In addition to her job as a designer she is a photographer. Most of her work focusses on society issues and culture.

When she feels stressed, she sketches or makes a lot of jokes, even though she’s not very good at it. She’s an honest person and she does not like lies. She keeps quiet when she’s angry, but that doesn’t happen very often.
