Presenting our third "role" model in our Model Mini-Blog Series, Sophia Jacob, an award winning event planner and marketing strategist who specialties in fundraising for non-profit organizations and brand promotion for small businesses.
We are honoured to have Sophia model the COKANNA clothing line and Wanderlust scarves at our Paris Nights Fashion Show & Sale on Saturday night.
In the last 5 years, Sophia has successfully started two networks: Ottawa Opportunities Network and Black Ottawa Business Network. Both networks hold events throughout the year for business professionals and entrepreneurs looking to network and meet other like minded individuals with whom they can do business with, partner or collaborate on new and innovative ways to become successful and service their ideal consumer.

Sophia is also the President of Sophia J Events, an event planning and marketing firm that provides services for small businesses​ and non-profit organizations.
As a philanthropist, Sophia likes to be of service and volunteer her time to various community projects and charitable organizations. She sits as a board member on the Social Planning Council of Ottawa, Femcity Ottawa, and Tampon Tuesday Ottawa.
Sophia continuously and tirelessly works on ongoing local projects and joint ventures as a way to keep learning and educating herself and to inspire others to do the same.
Sophia is the proud mom of her son who has grown up to be a thoughtful, kind, caring, and successful young gentleman. She loves to dance and listen to music while walking for overall fitness. Her favourite movie genres are action, comedy and drama just like her own busy, fun-filled, and successful life!

Come see Sophia in our Paris Nights Fashion Show and enjoy some delicious French pastries and desserts. What better way to spend a Saturday night!
