Sophia's father and brothers found the girl hidden in the cabinet. Her papa was furious and dragged her by the wrist on deck.
There wasn't much he could do with her, the boat had already left the docks and was sailing towards the Mediterranean. He decided to allow her to fish with her brothers, just this once, since there was nothing better for her to do .
Sophia fished alongside her brothers all day happily. She loved the sea and the opportunity to prove herself to her family. She knew she could help the family, and now was her chance.
The young girl's father watched her with a careful eye. He couldn't afford her to break his equipment. To his surprise however, she surpassed her brothers in everything she did.
Sophia outfished them, cleaned and handled the fish more efficiently then they did, she even worked harder than they did. Her father couldn't believe what he was seeing.
As they walked home, Sophia's father pulled her aside and did the unthinkable. He praised her for hard work and was very proud of her. She now had his permission to work for the family.
In the years to come Sophia would start working and start revolutions. She would present herself in front of thousands of people, demanding rights. And her father would be there-proud.
Sophia looked back in retrospect and couldn't believe how that small act of bravery, climbing into her father's boat, had done for her.
As she sat her desk she thought of how lucky she was. Sophia was grateful for being able to steal the chance that she saw. Now, she is the first female president of Greece.
