Sophie's future

While every day is still uncertain, Sophie has big plans ahead of her. She plans to race in the Sahara Desert 100km next year, for which she trained even when she was hospitalized.

She states, "committed to living life to the fullest, I’m always pushing myself to achieve my greatest ambitions.  I firmly believe that we should lead positive lives we’re passionate about, that we should never give up, and that we should always do what makes us happy. We should also go on new adventures, trying new sports and challenging ourselves to see what our mind and body can do both through things that scare you and excite you. After all, absolutely any dream is possible if you have the courage to pursue it." So, we think it's safe to say that Sophie still has some big adventures in store!
