PH represent! 20 year-old Sophia Laforteza secures a spot to be part of HYBE’s latest project, “The Debut: Dream Academy.”

In collaboration with Geffen Records, HYBE aims to discover the next global girl group. Sophia, along with participants from different countries including the USA, Japan, Thailand, and South Korea, will compete for a coveted position in the final group that will debut.

With her lively Instagram posts showcasing her life, friends, and fashionable OOTDs, Sophia describes herself as hysterical, caring, and diligent. Endowed with exceptional vocal skills evident on TikTok, she likely inherited her talents from her parents, actress and singer Carla Guevara Laforteza and chef Godfrey Laforteza.

Sophia also excelled in school, graduating with honors from the Multiple Intelligence International School before embarking on her training in the United States. The Debut will see contestants taking on missions, impressing strict mentors, and winning the hearts of fans. Don’t miss the show’s premiere on Youtube and on the Japanese platform, ABEMA.

You can support Sophia’s journey by voting for her on Weverse starting Sept. 6. Will she make the final cut? Don’t miss an episode to find out. The final members who will debut will be revealed on Nov. 17 in a live finale.
