Hi, I’m Sophie Lee Taylor (Sophie Cairns).
I used to be a journalist for several years, first in Hong Kong, then Shanghai and Paris. I was born and raised in Hong Kong, but I now call the Highlands of Scotland my home. Since 2009, I’ve raised over $18,000 for cancer research from climbing mountains and other events. I love the mountains, the water, skiing, languages, travel, and live music.

The aims behind the Seven Volcanoes Project are simple – to raise funds for cancer research and raise awareness of esophageal cancer. I lost my Dad to esophageal cancer in 2008. His sudden passing pushed me to climb mountains to raise money for cancer research.
This project is dedicated to the memory of my parents, Anthony Richard Taylor and Penny Lee Taylor.
