Hi, I’m Sophie!
I grew up in Cape Town, where my lifestyle of “skipping town” was sparked from excursions all over southern Africa. After a few bumps in the road, I learned to carve my path the non-traditional way. After high school, I moved to Thailand to work with Burmese migrants & Rohingya refugees. I came back to Colorado and graduated from college within a year and continued to travel.
A series of events led me to traverse the world in search of my Rohingya friends family members who fled for their lives and are now labeled as refugees.
As I traveled to reunite with them, I started documenting the journey along the way. 
Reuniting with my Rohingya friends inspired me to start my nonprofit organization, Books Unbound – to develop contextualized learning materials for refugees. Running a nonprofit isn’t the most lucrative endeavour, so I complement my work with freelance services.
I’ve been “strategically homeless” for the past few years, working remotely & traveling around the world.
