This week I’m chatting to creative powerhouse, Instagram influencer, kitchen dancer, style icon… the one and only Sophia Cook.
Growing up, Sophia loved the performing arts, leading onto studying and later working in theatre and costume design. We cover her journey from working as a wardrobe mistress in London theatres to overseeing builds of new schools with all the twists and turns in between. We talk about where she finds herself now, living and working in the stunning home that her and Cookie refurbished, also featuring in George Clarke’s Old House New Home on Channel 4.
We talk about the reality of having to choose jobs that pay the bills over pursuing your creative desires, the racism she has experienced in every single organization she has worked for, her process of unpacking and unlearning the limiting words of others that she has carried with her, the life her and Cookie are building for themselves and the future of their children, having someone to lean on for the first time and how she’s still figuring out what it is she wants to be when she grows up. And of course, so much more.
Welcome to episode five of season two with the glorious, vibrant, inimitable Sophia Cook.
