Sonia is a pre-law student majoring in psychology that is passionate about how the legal system and social, environmental and animal-related issues intersect.
After taking a sociology course on the history of agriculture, she was excited to join the JusTeam as it addressed many of the concerns highlighted throughout the course, and allowed her to put what she learned into practice! Sonia has greatly enjoyed learning about tea: the benefits of tea, how it is grown and processed, and how to analyze tea. She’s loves hearing the Bain’s stories from visiting Kenya, and tuning in to JusTea’s Instagram and Facebook pages for new stories about the JusTea Farmers. When she’s not studying or working you’ll likely find Sonia reading fantasy books, gardening or cooking with her grandmother over Skype!
