The sustainability advocate

Sophia Hamblin Wang

Meet Sophia Hamblin Wang, Chief Operating Officer of Mineral Carbonation International, Team Leader at Health Horizon, global shaper, Rubik’s cube master and much, much more…

Passionate about driving change, Sophia has combined all her loves into one jam-packed CV: COO of a company that transforms carbon dioxide into building products, Team Leader of a global health database, Canberra Ambassador for charity OzHarvest and Festival Coordinator for the Stronger Than Fiction Documentary Film Festival! How does she achieve so much? According to her, living in Canberra is the key.

“The quality of life here and the ability to so easily access resources has really allowed me to thrive—particularly in the start-up space. Canberra is big enough for you to find your niche but small enough to connect with some incredible mentors and thought leaders. Running MCi from Canberra allows me to maintain close ties with policy makers and governmental funding bodies, and I’ve been taking full advantage of direct flights to Singapore to develop our overseas market.

I also love to run and feel so lucky to have world class trails just minutes from anywhere in Canberra. I can’t think of any other city that allows you to have such a great balance with work and play.”
