About Sophie Barbier

Sophie is French-Australian and moved to New Delhi to join the team at Global Citizen India, unite communities of young ethical leaders at The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF), and eat great paneer. Her degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science was fairly good preparation for pretending to understand Hindi on a regular basis (achha!).
