Sophia Renee Jimenez is a 25-year-old transgender young woman whose mission is to inspire people to be their best possible selves. She grew up in a home where she was abused for not being what others expected of her, and as a young adult suffered from low self-esteem and a negative self-image. Through life experiences, Sophia came to understand that a person’s worth and beauty isn’t based on sexual preference or physical appearance, but rather on personal character and values. As a future nurse, Sophia will be able to help people not only feel better on the outside, but on the inside as well. Being a part of the Point Foundation will allow her to spread her message of self-love and inspire many.
