Sofiya Fayzieva

My name is Sofiya, but I go by Sonya, the story behind the names is as long as the story of how I ended up in the US. One thing I like to do, however, is to tell stories. Whether they are funny or sad, whether they are about my family in Russia or my friends in the States – I bring narrative wherever life takes me. At the moment I am at CalArts’ graduate program in animation where I continue to explore different ways to tell stories that connect to people’s most hidden emotional selves
