SOPHIA

Sophia Rinaldi 雷宜忻

DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL MEDIA -

When Sophia invited "JJ" the Cat to the design meeting, we knew that the Cat will be part of the payroll in the future. Then JJ became the "silent" spokesperson on behalf of all things "instagramable". So it is only right to give JJ the spot in our TEAM photo. Hopefully, JJ has already gotten your attention! Sophia has been seriously examining LI&CO. and YILINE's social media contents for a while. We are praying that after Sophia's minor touches and "tweeting", the website is finally able to "Meow" or "Wow" you. Sophia has been busy either working on her first novel or reading up the latest on social relevance, whenever she is not working on her important stuff. "JJ" also wants y'all to know that please don't bother to leave him a message; the Cat never returns any calls.
