Synopsis

Inspired by a true story, A Mind of Her Own tells the poignant and moving tale of Sophie, a determined young girl whose ambition to become a doctor is obstructed by her severe dyslexia. But Sophie, encouraged by her closest friend Becky, has never been one to give up and, despite being advised by parents and school teachers to be realistic and pursue something less academic, she puts herself through college and university, in the process achieving a first-class degree in biomedical science and a PhD conducting research into post-trauma regeneration of the spinal column, which ultimately leads to her achieving worldwide recognition for her work and helping to develop a cure for paralysis.

A Mind of Her Own won a Crystal Heart Award from the Heartland Film Festival in 2005.
