Sophie Holding the World Together is a portrait of nine-year-old Sophie Cruz, who has become a face of the American immigration reform movement. Born in Los Angeles to immigrants from Oaxaca, Mexico, Sophie first made headlines in 2015 when she crossed a police barrier during Pope Francis’s visit to Washington, DC, to hand the pontiff a letter asking him to help all immigrant children.
The mural is collaboration between El Mac and The Propeller Group, as part of the collective’s ongoing project, Viet Nam The World Tour. It is commissioned by SJMA, in partnership with Empire 7 Studios and the Children’s Discovery Museum, in connection with the current exhibition, The Propeller Group, on view through March 25, 2018

One of the best part about travel is that you just don’t experience the place that you visit but also carry memories. On a busy day, just the thought of place like this is an instant stress buster! 😇
Ps: I’m a beach person and I grew up on a town which has a beach. 😎
On my way to Kamakura today- which is a 3 hour train trip one way from the city where I currently live. I’m bringing all of my camera gear and am looking forward to shooting all day! My bag is heavy, but I want to utilize the opportunity to practice as much as I can!
