About the event

Introducing the incredible Sofia Sanchez! 🌟

 From a viral sensation to a Hollywood star, Sofia Sanchez, has captured hearts worldwide with her talent, advocacy, and unwavering spirit. 🎬✨ Starting with her powerful message, “Down Syndrome Is Not Scary,” Sofia’s journey has led her to acting in TV series like “Switched at Birth” and appearing in films such as “For Paloma” and “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.” 📺🎥  But Sofia’s impact extends far beyond the screen. 📚 Her inspiring adoption story has led to a series of empowering picture books with Scholastic, spreading messages of love and acceptance to children everywhere. 💕  An avid advocate, Sofia is deeply involved with organizations like Best Buddies, NDSS, and Gigi’s Playhouse, earning accolades such as the Generation G Award and Best Buddies Champion. 🏆  Her recent appearance at the “Barbie” movie premiere, where she dressed as the first-ever Barbie with Down Syndrome, sparked a fashion frenzy and showcased her influence on and off the pink carpet. 💃🎀  And now, Sofia is gearing up to take the stage at TEDxReno’s DISRUPTION on April 6, 2024, at Lawlor Events Center! 🎤 Don’t miss the chance to hear her inspiring story firsthand and witness her ongoing journey as an icon of hope and empowerment.
