November 2020
Meet the brain behind The 2045 Podcast and Sofi’s Newsletter:

Who are you?
Hey! I’m Sofi, a 16-year-old girl, located in Mexico, who’s extremely passionate about biotech, human longevity, and innovation itself. I’m learning a lot about exponential technologies to start a company that impacts the world positively. I write articles about scientific innovations explained the easy way and share ideas about the future in the 2045 Podcast

What are The 2045 Podcast and Sofi’s Newsletter?
The 2045 Podcast is the only podcast in which me, a GenZ girl, introduces you to other GenZ people who are about to or already are making a big impact in the world by using exponential tech. The episodes are especially designed so anyone can get some value out of them in less than 30 minutes. Innovation, personal improvement and the world!
Sofi’s Newsletter is meant to share with others my personal growth, which includes content I’ve created, consumed, projects I’ve developed and interesting people I’ve talked to.

Why did you start The 2045 Podcast and Sofi’s Newsletter?
The main two purposes of the 2045 Podcast are 1) To show the world what exponential technologies are, in a way in which anyone can understand them, as well as its applications and implications 2) Inspire other people, especially young, to start now so they can make an impact later. Sofi’s Newsletter arose from me realizing that I was growing more as a person, than I’d ever done before. The newsletter is a great way to keep myself accountable, grow my network, and share some valuable leanings with the world.

Where do you see yourself, The 2045 Podcast and Sofi’s Newsletter one year from now?
I really see an amazing future for the 2045 Podcast in one year from now. I see it as a podcast known my thousands of people. I have more episodes coming, with very interesting people from around the world, including early founders, CEOs, artists, inventors, and innovators. Collaboration will also be key, and knowing that people truly get value out of the podcast will be the most precious thing to know.
