Loved working with Sonia for her Denver Senior Pictures. She is such an outgoing young women and has a master plan to take her far in life. Sonia attends Alexandra Dawson School. Take a look at her photos and read her interview to get to know her.
Looking forward to the most your senior year: I look forward to trying new things. To me senior year, is not just about academic rigor but also pursuing things I couldn’t do earlier in high school. I want to try dance, knitting, and robotics.
Favorite thing about high school: My favorite thing about high school is how unpredictable each day can be. It’s a constant rush of energy in every hall and room.
Favorite thing to do in Colorado: I love snowboarding and try to go up every weekend in the winter
Something friends/people might not know about you: I love presenting. I know I may seem timid, but I really do enjoy making powerpoints and presenting them.
Your dream vacation: My dream vacation would be exploring Asia. I would love to go to Japan during the cherry blossom season.
Your proudest moment: My proudest moment would be when I won my state championship for Speech and Debate. Going up to the stage, before the announcement, I never thought I would be the state champion because it was only my second year in speech and debate and there were a lot of strong competitors.
When I grow up I wanna be: I’m not quite sure yet. I am leaning towards either aerospace engineering or graphic design.
If I won the lottery I would: If I won the lottery I would invest half of the money, and then disperse the other half to various volunteer organizations I believe in.
Favorite places to shop: I like to shop at Lucky Brand, Urban Outfitters, and Topshop
First concert: My first concert was Sam Smith at Red Rocks. It was the best experience ever.
Favorite moviesBreakfast at Tiffany’s Steel MagnoliasMy Big Fat Greek WeddingDead Poets SocietyMulanMamma Mia
Your list of possible colleges and majorSchools: CU boulder School of Mines
Three things you could not live without: I could not live without my library. I love reading and am always reading something new or rereading an old book. Secondly, I could not live without my box of art supplies. I like to capture the world around me in different mediums. Third, I could not live without my laptop. I am a very curious person and am always looking to the answer to something.
Your favorite family tradition with family or friends: My favorite family tradition would be lighting the candles for Diwali and making a rangoli( a mandala made of sand). Diwali is the new year in our culture and it always falls around my birthday, so it to me, it is a very special holiday, because it marks the beginning of a new year for me and for my family.
Your favorite memory growing up: My favorite memory would be going to the market in India when I was young. It was always crowded and hot, but the vegetables and fruits were well worth the trip. We always met someone we knew and that experience something has stayed with me for a long time because wherever I go, I always meet someone I’m somehow connected too. It’s a small world.
What you want to change about this world: Something I am passionate about is the relation between technology and people. Through space-time compression and globalization, the art of distinct culture is diminishing. It is amazing how technology is inherit to our lives today and I ponder about the pros and cons of being a committed internet user. Something, I want to change is our perception of boredom and to remind people that it’s okay to be offline, it’s okay to be bored.
Summer plans: I took an engineering class over the summer and learned about various types of engineering. It has helped me narrow down what I want to do in the future. Currently, summer hasn’t felt very summery with the first half feeling Seattle and the second like Phoenix, so I intend to spend my summer in doors where I can always predict the temperature.
Where do you envision yourself being in 10 yearsI envision myself having a job I might not have thought about in the past, traveling the world, and hopefully I am good cook by then.
