Through her involvement with Jack.org's Talks and Chapters programs, Sonia has developed a passion for mental health advocacy, particularly through an intersectional lens. She wanted to join the team to make a meaningful contribution to the organization's incredible programming. Sonia assists the Evaluation team with literature review, focus groups, and other tasks to keep Jack.org's programs evidence-informed. She feels that often, youth voices are left out of important conversations on how to improve our mental health systems. Sonia is inspired by Jack.org's advocacy work because the team attempts to centre youth perspectives in its programming. In her spare time, Sonia enjoys cooking, playing Tetris, and reading classic literature.
