Malaysian-born Sophie says her greatest strengths are creativity and the ability to ‘think outside the box’, but her weakness is mental arithmetic. She first worked as a catering company waitress and at the age of 19, began running her own restaurant while still studying as a student. She is passionate about food and describes herself as innovative and intelligent.

She says: “I don’t have a multi-million pound business but what I do have is the raw talent, the drive and the competitive streak.”
