Sofia Wylie: Yes, this was such a big dream of mine , and I’m so thankful to all the people who believed in me and helped make this happen.
J-14: What kind of stories do you hope to turn into films with your company?
Sofia: I’d like to put out material that has strong female storylines and celebrates unique cultures and experiences!
J-14: Do you have any projects in the works yet?
Sofia: I do! I read the book The Fall of Innocence and the story was so emotionally riveting that I knew I had to bring it to life, and now I have the opportunity to! I’m so honored to work with the author Jenny Sanchez to bring her YA novel to the big screen.
J-14: What advice do you have for other aspiring teen bosses?
Sofia: The most important thing is to believe in yourself. I’m just a normal kid and I know that if I can do it, anyone can do it. So don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
