” If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you will notice that I go by Sossie Rose. My college roommate invented this name. However, my real name is Sophia Sciarretti. I am currently attending Robert Morris University going for a duel major in marketing and management. I also compete in NPC bikini competitions.
Growing up in a huge Italian family, eating was my biggest hobby. Pasta and bread was my staple nutrition. Sauce and coffee ran through my blood stream. (Yes, I was a chubby little girl lol) I competitive danced for about 13+ years and was the captain of my high school dance team. Upon arrival to college, I realized I was out of shape and embarrassed about my appearance! At the time, I was working at a local gym and knew a couple girls that were getting ready to compete for their first bodybuilding show. I tagged along to do their hair and makeup for their big competition. Seeing all these gorgeous girls in amazing shape, I convinced myself that I was going to look like them someday. I started training and dieting for my first bikini competition and it was a big “wake-up call” for me to say the least. (NO MORE PLATES OF PASTA!) However, I endured the diet and training and ended up placing 4th at my first show! That competition bug has bitten me, and I am hooked.
The stage is the fun part but I love training, pushing my body to the limit, and seeing the results of hard work and dedication. I have learned so much about my physical and mental capacity. You acquire more and more knowledge on training, nutrition, and what works best for your body as each year passes. Being that I am only 21, I plan to keep moving forward on my fitness goals. I will continue to adore the sport of bodybuilding and hope to help inspire others along my fitness journey.”
