Every Sunday she appears on ‘Hadd Ghalik’, a Maltese entertainment show with an audience of 80,000. She toured the United Kingdom with Showbiz High, a singing/dancing group of teenagers from Malta. Sophie acted as singer, dancer, song author and choreographer. At the end of 2008 she played Sharpay in a national High School Musical production.
