I am Sofia Costoulas, I was born in Genk and I am 16 years old. I started playing tennis when I was 4 years old and I still love it. I study human sciences and besides tennis I like to be creative. My biggest hobby is Pokémon, both Pokémon games and collecting Pokémon cards. I am a great animal lover, so if I didn't travel so much it would be Pairi Daiza at home ;-) My biggest dream is to take part in the Olympic Games and win a medal for Belgium.Read more
