AYAF Chair - Sophia Ahern

Sophia is a student at the University of Queensland and is very passionate about space and physics. She is currently studying a Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering and a Bachelor of Physics.

Sophia first became involved with AYAA after hearing about an exciting opportunity to be part of the AYAA QLD committee, this is where she was appointed the role of Treasurer and from this point forward has been able to connect students to the aerospace industry and find what they’re passionate about in this field.

In 2019, Sophia hopes to continue to help others find and pursue their passions in the aerospace industry, especially from her position as the Australian Youth Aerospace Forum (AYAF) 2019 Chair. Ultimately, Sophia wants to work in the space industry developing new satellite and rocketry technology to learn more about space and the earth.
