Sophia Quach

Sophia Quach currently works in the California State Legislature developing policy and propelling legislation to help uplift marginalized communities and Californians. She has extensive international and domestic experience working on policymaking, global relations, and social impact. Sophia’s AAPI background as a Vietnamese American shaped her worldview; much of what drives her is her passion to give back to her community and loved ones by making their stories known and breaking intergenerational boundaries. Outside of her work at the Capitol, she works as an independent artist, practices meditation and Pilates, and likes to innovate cherished AAPI recipes with a sustainable, plant-based twist. Sophia holds a Graduate Certificate in Applied Policy and Government from CSU Sacramento and a bachelor’s degree in International Peace and Conflict from University of California, Berkeley.
