Sophie Turner grew up in southern Australia as the youngest of four children, immersed in a family that practiced the importance of traditional morals and values. Raised under very strict conditions, Sophie focused her early years solely on her education. After graduating high school in the top 0.02 % of the country, Sophie was accepted into one of the most prestigious law schools in Australia, the Flinders University School of Law.
Shortly after commencing law school, Ms. Turner’s world was jolted when she was scouted for the Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World competition, by Ford Models representatives visiting Australia. Within a flash, Sophie set fire to Australian television when she starred in Search for a Supermodel, the reality TV series surrounding the contest, which aired on Australia’s Network Ten in 2001. Being immediately dubbed as the crowd favorite and controversial star, the bubbly young teenager competed with thousands of Australian beauties for the coveted prize – a $250,000 modeling contract. Sophie’s confidence, charisma and crowd-pleasing antics led her directly to victory, when she won the prized ticket into the famed Ford Models Agency in New York.
