Her Frontline Service Placement was with Evolve Housing, where she developed Odyssey, a workbook for survivors of abuse that reimagined their stories as heroic journeys – inspired by Sophie’s background in Classics. She went on to found Birdsong, an ethical brand selling fashion made by women’s groups, during the final phase of the programme.
