A fter graduating with an English degree from Georgetown University in 2016, Sophie (who also happens to be a former T&C intern) joined Matte Projects, an upand-coming boutique creative agency in New York. As an accounts manager, she helps build brand identities, crafts digital content, and oversees all moving parts of projects for the likes of Chanel, Balmain, Fendi, Jill Stuart, Dom Pérignon, and Adidas.
T&C: What is your career goal? I want to stay involved in the creative industry, whether in fashion, film, or further agency work. My ultimate goal is to create something of my own, though I’m still in the process of discovering exactly what I want that “something” to be. T&C: Who has been your greatest influence? Growing up, my parents always encouraged my brothers and me to combine our academic strengths with our interests, and determine how that could turn into a career. We were always taught that with hard work, we could go after anything we were passionate about. I consider myself lucky that they supported me in pursuing a career in a creative field. T&C: How do you hope your work will affect others? The work I do is fun, fast-paced, and incredibly rewarding. What I love most is seeing the final product, seeing the hard work of so many different teams come together to create something beautiful and artistic. I would love to be able to encourage more people to work in industries that truly excite them.
