Sofiri Seasons Greetings! 2018: a year to reflect on.

Sofiri has been on an incredible ride in 2018 with lots of highs, a few challenges but thankfully not too many lows – this, we have discovered, is the life of any start up!

The end of a year always allows a pause to reflect on what has been and what is to come.

We’re not going to deny that it’s been hard work. After all, we are a small team with HUGE goals. But like the elves in Santa’s workshop we have been busy creating, developing and moving onwards and upwards. At the heart of this is our vision to support prospective international students into the future.

We are grateful to you for also believing in Sofiri’s vision and want to extend our gratitude.
