"Sophie was managing editor and the person I was most in touch with when writing for Expatica. She’s the one who onboarded me when I started freelancing for the platform. Sophie is incredibly patient and quick with responding to questions, and she keeps freelancers well updated and engaged.

As a freelancer, I work with different people and organisations. Sophie stands out in how she’s professional yet personal in her approach. Her genuine interest, accessibility and flexibility made it a pleasure to freelance for her. She was one of the reasons I took up repeated commissions with Expatica, and I would work with her again in a jiffy if she came to me with a new assignment!"
