About Us

So, Who Is Sophie?

Sophie Hukom was her full name. As a single mother, she worked her entire life started from a job as a bar soap sales person on bicycle, until she was hired for a job in Paris, France. She returned to Indonesia, and continue to work in several Australian and US companies on managerial level – for service and hospitality division. She was a single parent raising her son and was able to send him to continue his education in the US.

She lost her husband when he was jailed and died as politician who went against the former dictator of the country she lived in. Her position in several of her jobs enabled her to travel the world and had high taste of things in life but yet humble, hospitable, caring for others. Her dedication to serve others is the culture and motto of her life; we want to embed it in this venture as an honor to her, and to all the fighting women and single parents in the world.

Why, The Sophie’s Choice?
