Ms. Sofia Begum

Qualifications: M. Ed. (Drama)

I have always been interested in applying radical empathy in my practice. My degree in English Literature allows me the capacity to always read between the lines and to encourage my students to be critical about information and context. Having worked as a programmer who developed and produced arts experiences for young audiences for the past 8 years, I had begun my journey observing how kindness and empathy made an impact on young people. The arts is more than a medium, it is a whole system of learning. My teaching philosoply is facilitatitve, always providing space that allows them to build their own identities through dialogue, discourse and research.
