Sophie moved to London fresh from the countryside, bringing with her an endless list of skills that many of us would call unique. Born and raised in the Midlands, Sophie attended the same school as the infamous band Kasabian and quickly decided that she wanted to follow in their gifted footsteps.
She began her journey by taking up typical musical hobbies – violin, singing, dance and drama were all good fun, but her mum couldn’t quite appreciate the artful sounds and she was soon asked to rethink her intentions. Instead, Sophie moved onto a slightly more diverse range of talents, often found practicing the ukulele and marching with the Girls Brigade, waving her flag with pride. After seven devoted years however, she felt she wasn’t channelling her inner Kasabian and Sophie found herself “Jack of all trades, master of none”.
It wasn’t until Sophie caught her big break as Grandpa in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, that her luck began to change. Leaving school to begin Business Studies at the University of Birmingham, Sophie’s skillset took off at the speed of light (quite literally!), joining the Formula 1 student team and travelling cross-country building race cars for the circuits. From there she continued to amaze, making it onto Trainline’s student programme and winning the award for highest placement grade at University.
After all her successes, Sophie finally decided that music wasn’t her calling and cemented her future by joining the Paid Social Department at Merkle | Periscopix, bringing her countless skills along for the ride. Sophie hasn’t looked back since and we’re so glad, as she continues to show her motivation and dedication to the team every single day!
