Sophia Mucci is Harvesting Knowledge

Passionate and driven, sophomore environmental geosciences major Sophia Mucci hopes to use technology to save crops from climate change.

To get out of the house and do something for the community during the pandemic, Sophia Mucci joined her local Plant a Row for the Hungry garden. The Fort Mill, S.C., high school sophomore wanted to work outdoors and help get produce to food shelters.

“It was the first time I had ever seen a tomato on a vine,” says Mucci. “Everyone helped me learn the joys of farming.”

The Honors College student now wants others to experience the joys of farming, but climate change has put agriculture at a crossroads. Her first year at the College, she began a geospatial research project to determine the impacts of climate change on South Carolina agriculture and help agriculture and government make better choices for the future.
