Sofía

32 minutes

What were your dreams at 16? Sofía lives on a remote coffee farm in Nicaragua and hers is to be a great english translator.

But Sofía needs school and a lot of luck. Every morning in her blue and white school uniform she walks for an hour to school. The road is deserted and her family knows she may be attacked. And then she walks home.

Each coffee we drink holds the hopes of Sofía living a life off this farm. Or is that just wishful thinking?
