“In every student we serve, I see myself: a future learner who just needs to believe in themself.”
Determined to break the economic barriers to educational support, Sophie created Student Connection, which pairs economically disadvantaged students with trained tutors to boost their self-confidence and, as a result, strengthen their academic performance. In three years, the program has directly supported 500 students across 70 schools.
