Hi! I’m Soph – creator behind this blog, model, reader, journaler, writer, and picture taker. I was born in January ’99. Born and raised in The Netherlands, currently living in [Seoul, South Korea]. My MBTI type is INTJ.

I have always had a love for storytelling. When I was too young to write down the stories I came up with, my mom wrote them down for me. I was always stuck with my nose in a book, both for fun and for studying. As I grew older, I slowly got out of touch with those amazing hobbies, until I discovered the side of the internet where people were talking about books and writing. That inspired me to start blogging. ‘SOPH IS BLOGGING’ isn’t my first attempt at blogging, since I quickly discovered that only talking about books and writing was too much of a niche for me. Now I am happily blogging about whatever my hobbies are, such as journaling, but still with a big focus on books.

Ever since I graduated high school in 2018 I’m on an indefinite gap year to do modeling work. [In the second half of 2019 I moved to Seoul for modeling work, studying, and love.]

In my free time I like to read (YA) books, write, (bullet) journal, watch Netflix, listen to music, take pictures, go hicking, or blog.

‘SOPH IS BLOGGING’ is a blog about my life and interests. Every week I post a diary entry, sharing what I did that week. This is to keep in touch with the people back in The Netherlands in a fun way, to save my memories, and to show what life in Seoul is like for me.

I also post reviews of (almost) every book I read or talk about book related topics, share pages from my journals, talk about movies & tv shows I have seen, and more.

I hope I can inspire others to chase their dreams, read, write and be creative because of my blog. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment here or reach out to me on social media; I’d love to make friends who share the same interests!
