During Media Day in Blantyre, Malawi, Sophie was the center of attention for her thoughts on how soccer can change and improve the lives of young girls. Focusing on her own life that led her from Belguim to France and now to Harvard University in the US, Sophie conducted a number of radio and press interviews and talked about how Coaches across Continents has helped young girls to choose their futures by giving them a voice. She spoke clearly about how young men change their views on women in developing communities when they are able to share time on the field and how attitudes and teenage pregnancies have dropped in Blantyre due to the success of the after school football program.
Sophie is working at the PLAY SOCCER Malawi program with Coaches across Continents.
