Propeller: Which was your favorite part of your time in New York?

SONJA: The environment was my favorite part! The love and diversity, also it was my first time in NYC so seeing all of the old buildings and the culture. Can't forget the delicious greasy pizza and we had AMAZING jerk chicken.

Propeller: Which non-profits at Propeller are most important to you and why?

SONJA: The most important non-profits at propeller for me are The Color of Change, and The Trevor Project. Being a member of both the African American community and the LGBTQ community, I have witnessed first hand the result of discrimination and intolerance. These causes give me the opportunity to help and support where I can.  

Propeller: Is there anything we could do to improve the experience?

SONJA: I had the time of my life! Not much would have improved the experience, I had a really great time.
