I am Sophia Ruth. I am a mental health advocate and force of nature.

I am the host of the hurricane pod, a podcast about living with mental illness – crying, surviving, even thriving. The podcast centres women and non-binary people, and other marginalised voices, and discusses how they experience different challenges such as navigating relationships in recovery, coping at university, and more. If you’re interested in being a guest on the podcast, would like to suggest a guest or topic, or would like to have me on your podcast, please use my contact page.


I write primarily about mental health and body image, as these are two very central issues in my life. I quite often link these to things that I love and care about – my life does not entirely revolve around my struggles – such as books, music, and (of course) feminism! Along side writing my blog here, I regularly write for Powered By Girl – a feminist website dedicated to all things girl! – and The Gryphon (typically, the music section!).

Thank you for hanging out with me on my site! If you would like to stay in touch, you can follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. You can also keep up with me by subscribing to my YouTube channel, and subscribing to the hurricane podIf you’d like to help me out, please take a look at some of my zines + art stuff!

Don’t forget to say hi – I’d love to get to know you more!
