In her message, she suggested she’d be opening more schools in honor of her father, as before his death, the activist teen was working on multiple education initiatives in Southeast Africa.

"Our first school is finished and I can’t tell you how proud and excited I am to see it open on Wednesday. Thank you to my amazing partner Ruben for everything. Especially for fighting to name the school after my dad," she wrote alongside a photo of herself and her two friends who helped her with the project.

RadarOnline.com readers recall Sophie rushed to her father’s side when he suffered a massive stroke in February. She and her brother, Jack, remained with him through his hospitalization and were present when he passed away in March. He left everything to them.

She’s since shared various tributes to Luke, often posting photos of the two and sharing with fans the wisdom he taught her.
