Howdie, Sonia Singh!

I had the oppurtunity to feature sophomore Sonia Singh. Not only is she a straight-A student, but she also represents a multi-cultural background. Sonia struck my interest because she has such a fun-loving personality. It was fascinating to learn more about her life and family.
