Hi, I’m Sophie!

I go by she/they pronouns. I am the founder of LVRSNFRNDS, a new type of social network based on intimate conversations that connect you to your authentic self and new friends. I'm also a relationship expert and reiki practioner, who doesn't take themself too seriously.

As a French-Moroccan born in Morocco, growing up in France, I developed a curiosity for identity and relationships very early, spent my teens learning to love parts of myself others rejected and praying for my parents to get a divorce.

I am a queer person of color with an invisible disability, a survivor of many things, white and hetero passing. The combination of who I am and how I pass provides me with a unique kind of privilege that I strive to leverage every day.

I want to make the world a better place for people from marginalized identities, people who've been hurt and those who love them. This is where LVRSNFRNDS comes from: I want it to be a safe space where they can make friends, talk, explore, and help each others.
