Sophia Cecilia Druffner ’19

Hi! What’s your name?

I’m Sophie from Dallas, Texas, and I’m a member of Vandy’s Class of 2019! I’m now FINISHED (get it? because I’m GRADUATED) with a math major, violin performance minor, completed premed track (Y’all it’s FUN!), and a series of Honors Seminars as part of being a Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholar in the College of Arts and Sciences.

When I went to Vanderbilt, I was present at office hours, did innumerable proofs, and E flat major scales. For my first two years, I volunteered by teaching violin lessons weekly and playing at a nursing home once a month with people who are the absolute sweetest. I’ve also co-founded the Scholars Council, the student leadership arm of the Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholarship, now in its third year (as of the end of Spring 2019).

In my senior year, I was the president of Sigma Phi Lambda, the Christian sorority on campus, directed the 2018 first-year outreach program (Ascend) for University Catholic, and was in my fourth year as a research assistant in the SyBBURE Undergraduate Research Program.

Things about me to know: I love bringing people together, introducing people to one another no matter how awkward it is, lovely coffee dates with lovelier people, and Dove dark chocolate more than anything except the walking and saying the rosary. 

From June 2019-June 2020, I will be a Teach For America Corps member teaching high school math because EVERYONE needs to love math. Really. They do. You do! In the future, I’d like to be admitted into graduate school (who knows) for community psychology/public health before/while attending medical school to become a palliative care physician-scientist.

Through this blog, I hope to tell you everything that everyone didn’t tell me! Probably plus more than you even are to know. And lastly… friends, don’t be afraid to email me because I am still answering my email. Seriously. You can ask me anything about anything, including the weird things I’ll (probably) be talking about from premed or whatever strange Catholic thing I might have mentioned. So hit me up and ask me anything! If I’m not a pre-law Theatre major, then I can find someone who is. :) If you need motivation, read this post! Happy Holidays!!! Email me!!! Happy Holidays again!
