Sofía Sánchez is an Associate Producer at FUHi. Before Futuro, Sofía reported on politics and produced for Texas Public Radio’s Border and Immigration Desk. There, she launched “Line in the Land,” TPR’s first bilingual podcast that threads the needle among the seismic forces that led to Haitians’ mass-migration journey. Her audio work has aired on the NPR Politics Podcast, NPR’s All Things Considered, Foreign Policy and Latino USA. Sofía’s writing on race and identity has also been recognized by the American Studies Association.
An Illinois native, she was raised in small-town Galena and graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2021. Sofía is committed to crafting constellations of self-luminous lives — stories that take the vast expanse of time, establish the human story as the North Star and guide listeners through the pattern of data and institutional flaws that, together, remind them they live within something more than just a random scattering of light.
