She is not a new face to many of you in Facebook now. About a year ago she joined our Facebook page MISL and those days she was a radio presenter in career. She came to the spotlight with the mentioned radio program which was aired both in voice and video media. At present she has taken some spectacular steps in the field and has gone to her fans in Television programs and commercials too. We got an opportunity to speak a few words with her during her tight work schedule and here we give you some of the little chat we had with her.
Hi Sophie B, what are you doing these days? We’d like to know about yourself. Let us ask you few questions.
Could you give us a short & sweet introduction about yourself?
Ha, ha…not very sweet once you get to know me. Very pig-headed (sometimes) ;), very stubborn, kinda fun, loves country music, (Brad Paisley, Randy Travis, Dolly Parton, Diamond Ri, Brooks n’ Dunn, Alan Jackson, Bellamy Brothers ect )
People call you as? (Any Nick name?)
How did you enter this Radio Presenting and this Tele-Comunication industry?
From the time I was in school , I joined the industry while doing my A/L’s
How do you spend your leisure time?
I normally hang out with my super-awesome boyfriend (Tharindu -aka. Mackie), and I’m glad he puts up with me & almost all my time I spend at the studio…but I love it…so it’s no chore at all.
What do you think about the school life…?
School days are truly the best days of your life. If you are in school now and hating it…well a little advice don’t…those are days you can never get back, you don’t have to believe me…just wait and see…but im saying this cause I don’t want anyone to miss out on this wonderful period in their lives. I still miss school even today. It was the most care-free time in my life. I could have made mistakes and it was ok, but out here,,,in the world, everyone wants to eat you alive. I’m not kidding. It takes cannibalism to another level.
Do you love to follow new fashion trends in your ordinary life or do you prefer to be charm?
If yes to follow new fashion what do you prefer most? No, I’m very old fashioned person. I’m not a model figure, so everything does not fit me (thank God I have the sense to realize that-so I don’t end up looking like an idiot ) I normally shop once a year or only if I really need something. I normally have my eye on something for a couple of months before I actually buy it, if it’s gone by then, too bad.
What cosmetics do you recommend?
I normally use mascara, eye liner and lip balm only. Nothing else. Even if it’s a wedding
Your idea about friends..?
Friends are many…….good friends are like diamonds, so rare and the most precious.
What’s your idea about your parents?
Keep your parents always close to your heart in whatever you o, you may not understand now, even I sometimes I don’t, but what they tell you has so much wisdom, we will be fools not to adhere to their advice.
Your idea about Sri Lanka..? What do you think?
Sri Lanka is truly a beautiful paradise island. I’m not saying that it is perfect, but I think there are so many things in our island that can be rectified if we join together and work towards building our country together. It is an awesome country. I wish I could say the same for some people. They are normally very helpful and considerate, but you get off -hand people, who can really screw up your day. I also wish freedom of dress was a bit more accepted. I’m not talking minis, but after a long day of work, I really don’t wanna pull on a pair of jeans just to go to the kade (market).
What is the most unforgettable incident in your life?
When I woke up one morning and my bro told me Michael Jackson died I never believed him. My bad.
What do you think about love & tell us about your soul mate...
Love is very tricky. Everything out there, song, movie, book is about love, but it still screws all of us up. I guess its something we gotta live and learn. Soul mate – I don’t believe in that, but if there is one, it’s definitely Tharindu. It’s more about understanding (hope he doesn’t see this, cause he says I need more of that :) ) and well I enjoy and look forward to being around him, try to involve him in everything I do as much as possible, and I think/hope :P it’s vice verse
What is the secret behind your success?
There is no success story. It’s loving what you do, and determination to do what you want and don’t let people get you down. It’s not worth it The success is not from me, its having a supportive, strong family, specially my mum.
Who is your role model ? & are you imitating someone?
I don’t think I have role model, I just look at successful people and think, if they can do it, so can I.
People do have these bitter incidents in their lives.. It's the same with evry human being. I'm sure you must have had the same bitter experiences in life. Would you like to share one of them with us? Perhaps the worst one from them?
I don’t wanna share It’s very personal
Are you happy with whatever you've achieved so far in life?
Yes I have, but there is so much to do, and ain’t getting any younger.
Advices to the new comers & to the people who are gonna join the industry ?
I think the industry is been given a bad name these days, so if you wanna screw around, pls go do a porno or something and stop ruining it for the rest who are genuinely interested in the field.
What are your Ambitions?
At the end of the day, if you listening to my show, are happy, then I am happy.
What do you think about yourself.. Who are you?
I don’t know, you tell me…
What do you have to say to your fans? It's the time to share your thoughts...
I would lovee to thank my fans, obviously without who there would be no me out there. Thank you so much for all the support whenever I need you, you are always there. No matter how stuck up you thing I am (I’m not) you always help me out and support me…thank you
At the end of the conversation we gave her some tiny questions in the hope of getting some short and crispy answers which we are sure that you will love ;)
Sweet and charming Sophie reviels her full name as Sopie Becks.But for the next question we didn’t get much of an answer which was asking for her age. ;] She was the head prefect of her school,Gateway College. It was cute to get the answer ‘Any’ when we asked her of her favorite colors and an animal. She loves to eat Koththu and mostly Indian foods and prefers drinking Orange juice from Pilla. Water is the only thing that she scared of as she told us and that means swimming. She got a really inspiring favorite quotation in life which is “What doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger” and is having a funny but witty personal quotation which she mostly uses, “ …it’s not even funny…”
