Sophia Swire

Sophia founded the non-profit Future Brilliance to foster stability and prosperity through enterprise and workforce development in post conflict countries. Its first project helped Afghan women artisans gain access to the gemstone and jewelry value chain and was launched as a collaboration between 36 Afghan artisans trained by Future Brilliance and 3 award-winning international designers. Since then, the line has been sold successfully at stores and online in Asia, EU, Canada, USA, and Mexico, and in 2016 was featured on the front cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine globally, modelled by Brazilian supermodel, Alessandra Ambrosio. Sophia is in demand as a expert and speaker on Social Impact Investment and Social Entrepreneurship.
