Sophia Cortes-Bejarano Writer

Sophia Cortes-Bejarano is a staff writer for The Record Underground. She hails from the suburban hell of South Florida. Since learning at a young age about the riot grrrl and DIY movements of the 90s, Sophia has hungered to be a part of a strong community. She continues learning from the past and applying its teachings to her present and future. As a creative herself, Sophia is a strong believer in taking art into your own hands and lifting the voices of creatives as much as possible. In finding the entrance to The Record Underground, Sophia hopes to keep its doors open to all who wander in search of community and good music. Sophia is currently putting pen-knife to paper and finishing her Bachelors of English Literature at FIU.
