What people are saying…
Ten minutes into her dynamic and energetic talk, I realized that I could not have picked a better speaker!! In a packed conference room at Dragonfly Sushi, we had her address many topics from obtaining leadership skills, finding the right job, tackling a difficult workplace or difficult personalities at work, coordinating your personal and professional lives as a wife, mother, athlete or even a single woman, mentorship struggles and self-preservation while climbing high ladders as minority women or as women in general. She hit on other important topics as well such as branding yourself and not having to follow a mold or pattern others may have and reinventing yourself. Sonjia candidly discussed her career trajectory and her struggles as a successful researcher and academician without censoring any of the important details others often leave out claiming to be “politically correct”. In fact, she shows everyone with her courage and strong personality that it is okay to NOT be politically correct at times and that it is the duty of women positioned high in academic leadership to break old barriers and obstacles so that the younger generations can advance forward with more ease! She is exactly the authentic speaker I needed for our first talk. Her evaluations after the talk were stellar and we are planning the next one already in early August.
Sonjia-you are my idol. I want to brand myself into you 🙂 But it may be too late…”
