    Born into Peru’s terrorist state during the 1980’s, Sofia found surfing as an escape. Today she is in Hawaii pursuing her childhood dream of becoming a World Champion surfer, something that has never been achieved in modern day surfing history by a South American. Join photographer Renzo Giraldo on assignment as he embarks on a journey to uncover how one girl defies perceptions and stereotypes while learning to believe in her self and inspire a nation in the process. Sofia tells the story of how an unlikely heroine has inspired a new energy within her developing nation. It demonstrates how Sofia embodies Peru’s new wave toward progress, proving the statement “Si se puede!” (Yes, you can!)
