Portuguese online news magazine NIT published an article (written by journalist Maria Salgueiro) about Sofia’s journey as a hard of hearing woman and actress, and the impact she is trying to make in the industry and society through her work. Due to the mandatory use of masks, which has made it very difficult for deaf and hard of hearing people to understand what is being said (lip reading is essential) Sofia has developed a brand of transparent masks (Listen To My Lips ®) to help solve this problem, fighting discrimination and hoping to make people’s lives easier.

Here’s the article (in Portuguese):
