Sophie tells us some of her goals for the year ahead as we reflect on the lessons learned from 2020.

The decision helped her get into the work of aging and gave birth to her own award-winning website called global health aging. Recently, Sophie became a science writer for Forbes Science, which is an amazing accomplishment. She lets us know how that happened and gives tips and tricks to anyone interested.
