Style Advisor: Soraya Matos

avatar School: Wheaton College Although most people know that me as the extremely loud, kooky girl that’s always jumping around, I’m Soraya! I’m originally from the notorious and super stylish Hamptons in New York but I lived in Portugal for a few years as a young child and still am extremely connected to my Portuguese roots. I love adding a European touch to everything I do. My passion and number one love in life is photography but I also love to travel, paint and relax on the beach. I am currently a sophomore at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. I am currently coordinating my own visual sociology major, with a concentration in photography. I currently live in a single (hoorah!) as I am a Resident Advisor of Emerson House here at Wheaton. Though I’m a little compulsive when it comes to organizing, every item in my room has a back-story that completely reflects my personality. I love being able to feel at home even when I’m at school, which is why I can’t sleep without my feather duvet and my blanket, mi-mi. Despite being your typical, extremely busy, college girl, my style tends to reflect how unique I truly am and I am excited to be able to convey that all to you.
