Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Sofia C, CEO of Sofia’s Pupuseria.
Sofia Contreras is a senior at Brooklyn International High School. She is passionate about food and cooking. Sofia came from El Salvador where cuisine is a big component of the culture. Early in life, her father taught her how to cook. She embraced cooking as a form of freedom and expression. Sofia aims to share a passion that is close to her heart with her classmates and teachers. The pupusas are homemade and handmade Salvadorian gorditas, made from corn flour, vegetables, and beans. Sofia looks forward to embarking on the discovery of pupusas and exquisite flavors from El Salvador around the table with you.
