Sophie Lau, one of the contestants in this year's BBC programme, The Apprentice.
Lives: Bristol, UK
Malaysian-born Sophie says her greatest strengths are creativity and the ability to 'think outside the box’', but her weakness is mental arithmetic. She first worked as a catering company waitress and at the age of 19, began running her own restaurant whilst still studying as a student. She is passionate about food and describes herself as innovative and intelligent.
She says: "I don't have a multi-million pound business but what I do have is the raw talent, the drive and the competitive streak."
