Sophia is a singer, songwriter and artist who hopes that people will remember her after performing on stage in Gliwice-Silesia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Sophia won the national selection for the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. She was chosen by a 7-person expert jury out of 10 shortlisted candidates who submitted their songs online.

The 13-year-old has been singing since she was 4 and started her professional career at age 10. She writes her own songs and performs them either solo or together with her older brother on guitar. When Sophia took part in The Voice Kids, she was on Eurovision 2016 winner Jamala’s team.

Her song The Spirit of Music contains a message that everyone can find their inner strength with the help of music. Sophia: "Music has incredible transforming power. It is a universal key to inner happiness. If any problems cause you distress, you can bring up your internal energy by singing the melody that comes from your heart."

The young singer is looking forward to making new friends in Poland, learning different cultures and having an unforgettable experience. "It is also a wonderful opportunity for me to present my creativity to people from other countries and to perform on such a big stage. When I first saw the stage layout, it took my breath away. It is fantastic!"
