City Honors Student Named IUSD Stellar Student Spotlight Winner

City Honors High School student Sophia Baker has a bright future in Hollywood! Sophia was recently one of 18 students chosen from 150 applicants to join the “Young Executives Fellowship” (YEF), which is a new program for high school sophomores that want to become future leaders in film and TV. For that reason, and many others, Sophia has been selected as our newest IUSD Student Spotlight Winner.


Sophia is originally from Chino, California, but moved to Inglewood at age 14 and attended Frank D. Parent for middle school. She maintains a 3.8 GPA at City Honors and plays on the Inglewood High School Girls Volleyball team. She also volunteers in her community by feeding the homeless at First Baptist Church, volunteering at the Love Joy Foundation dog shelter, and assisting the Inglewood High School Boys Volleyball Team. Her hobbies include writing short stories and poems.


Upon graduating from high school, Sophia would like to attend Howard University or U.S.C., major in literature, and eventually attend law school. She would like to pursue a career in entertainment law.

Sophia has this advice to share with her fellow IUSD students: “Always have a good attitude. If you are ever in a bad situation always remember that the only way to make it better is to change yourself, and the attitude you have towards the situation.”
