Sophie is an award-winning disability advocate & social entrepreneur who was paralysed when she was 18 years old. Determined to channel her adversity into opportunity, she sees her challenges as a unique chance for creativity and has become the ultimate agent for change.

She embodies her values; finding creative opportunity in diversity and adversity, and daring to be different, she proves the value and power of true disability representation in all areas of her work and life.

She is now one of the only Television Presenters with a disability in the world. She is also one of the few women to present an adventure travel show. This spring Sophie is setting out on her biggest adventure yet – travelling from India to Japan on a Mad Max-style Trike.

“Sophie Morgan: The Longest Route To The Games”, (2x60mins) is to be produced by Full Fat TV and sees the campaigner and Rio Paralympics presenter sweat it out across the Himalayas, passing through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Her momentous journey culminates in Japan where she will soak up the Olympic fever gripping Tokyo ahead of the 2020 Paralympics. Along the way she’ll be joined by fellow female bikers and local Paralympians as well as catching up with friends and family as she pushes herself to her physical and emotional limits in some of the world’s toughest terrain.

Sophie can be found presenting most Live Para Sport events as well as hard-hitting current affairs programs such as Dispatches and Unreported World. She is also a board member for Ofcom, the UK government- approved regulatory broadcast authority.

She established Sophie Morgan Creative Ltd and is leading the charge to better representation for disabled people in retail, travel and design.

Global Brand ambassador for Toyota GB and CanAm, Sophie is a passionate adventurer who believes that the right vehicle can transform your world. Sophie is also a judge for Toyota’s mobility prize to be announced in 2020. She is also Global Ambassador for Womens Rights and Inclusive Education for Leonard Cheshire, and on the Special Advisory Committee for Human Rights Watch.

Sophie doesn’t just talk – she enables and creates change. In everything she does, from hosting Global Disability Summits to working along side global mega brands such as Air BnB or GoPro to open their minds to the ‘disability opportunity’ to traveling the world to document abuses in human rights, she lives, breathes and creates the change she wants to see in the world.

I feel incredibly fortunate that I crossed paths with Sophie. Working with her was an immensely rewarding period of my life and undoubtedly a career highlight. Despite all of the challenges Sophie has faced she is passionate, determined and positive, not only around issues affecting those with a disability but about delivering positive change for all of us.
