Raised by an Ivorian mother and Australian father, Sophie was exposed to a wide range of differing cultural and creative practices that have influenced her as an artist to this day.
Having decided at a very young age that performance was her passion, her family supported her in engaging in a range of extracurricular programs to facilitate that dream.
At age 12 she was accepted into Newtown Performing Arts High School where she furthered her creative education with a focus on drama. In 2018 she was cast as a lead in Arundati Thandur’s short film Bird.
During her time at NIDA Sophie has developed a keen interest in Applied Theatre, the development of her own work and tackling issues around diverse representation.
