Sophia Todd is overwhelmingly honored to be your new Miss Kentucky's Teen 2023! Sophia is 17 years old and from Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Sophia attends Elizabethtown High School and for her upcoming senior year, she will be dual enrolled at Campbellsville University and Elizabethtown Community & Technical College.
Sophia's Community Service Initiative is Artspoken, a project she created and utilizes to educate all Kentuckians on the healing change that happens when art gives a voice to the voiceless through art expression. Sophia currently volunteers as an art teacher at an at risk youth community program called Hope Academy for Kids. Art has always been an important part of her life. When she was younger, she had trouble communicating and art unlocked not only her creative side but the ability to communicate her feelings when she struggled.
Sophia has been in the gifted and talented arts program since middle school and has received the honor of advanced art placement in high school. Sophia is a three-time national art champion through the national Beta Club organization, where she is required to maintain an honor roll GPA to compete in onsight drawing and painting. One fun fact about Sophia is that she is a professional face painter. She has face painted her way across Kentuckiana spreading smiles and fundraising, which led her to find her talent of speed painting!
Sophia enjoys all things Disney (and her brother works there). She loves to travel (especially to New York where her other brother lives), and she loves to spend time with the best friends a girl could ever have! In the future Sophia wants to do it all! She aspires to be an entrepreneur, a Cosmetologist, and an Art Therapist.Her goal is to continue the work she has started in her community and expand its reach across the state and even nationally. Sophia is excited for her year of service and will represent Kentucky to the best of her ability on and off the stage!
