Why Sophie wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I want to be a voice for children fighting cancer, because my uncle’s mother – who I was very close to – passed away because of cancer. I want to be able to to pass a message to all of those kids fighting cancer, and give them hope and something to hold on to, give them a reason to fight. In the future, I want to become a doctor and find a cure for cancer.
