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. I came back to Colorado and graduated from college debt-free within a year and continued to travel.
A series of events led me to traverse the world in search of my lost friends who fled for their lives. They are now labeled as refugees.
As I pieced together their stories, I was inspired to take on the role of a storyteller. I’ve had the privilege of traveling to 19+ countries to document and share the stories of individuals I’ve met along the way. My job is to give them a platform to share their story.
Their stories inspired me to start my nonprofit organization, Books Unbound – to develop contextualized learning materials for refugees. With my international team of artists, animators, and designers, we provide materials for marginalized communities who are unable to attend a traditional school.
My secret to becoming strategically homeless? I’m a freelance guru.
