Since being diagnosed in 2015, opera singer Sophia is also raising awareness and funding through guest appearances, concerts and media interviews worldwide in addition to her regular performances.
In 2016 Sophia was invited to perform for the opening ceremony of XI Autism-Europe International Congress in Scotland and in 2017 she gave a performance (and her presentation 'Finding My Voice Through Singing') for Inservice Autisme International Conference in Belgium.
In the same year, Sophia made a guest appearance at the Royal Albert Hall (main stage) and spoke on behalf of NAS about her life as an opera singer with autism.
Sophia recently returned from Antwerp where she was invited to give a talk for the Royal Academy and Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp as part of INSPIRE! 2020. She is also delighted to be featured in the book 'Autism Works' by Adam Feinstein, published by Routledge publishers.
Sophia is currently featuring in the exhibition "You, Me And Autism Too" which is touring throughout the UK.
Sophia is proud to be appointed Ambassador for Autism Wessex along with Harry Redknapp.
