Sophie Cook is, among other things and in no particular order, a football manager, an author, a jet engine technician, a photographer, a mental health worker, Whitehawk FC’s new equality and diversity officer, a public speaker and a transgender person who lives in a horsebox. Most of all, she is happy. Her mission is to try to help other people to be happy, too. Can’t argue with that, right?
