Meet Sonya Sun
Sometimes, we need to take the time to get to know one another. As a millennial, it seems as though we have come to accustomed to always being on our phones. As high schoolers teachers would give us a detention if they even remotely saw you using your phone. The constant need to “be in the know” has made us miss out on reality and life.. Older generations are stating “Younger generations are losing their social skills”.
Today, I decided to put my phone down and get to know one of my fellow classmates. I met Sonya Sun, on Tuesday in my Styling class with Elizabeth Baca. For a semester I noticed this bubbly and energetic individual sitting in front of me. Of course we would always greet each other before the start of class, but as students we don’t take the time to get to know one another. Projects give us the opportunity to work with each other on a creative aspect. But, are we really learning anything about one another? Lost in the library at 180 New Montgomery, I saw Sonya Sun waving me down as she giggled. Her bubbly and vibrant personality caught my attention, that and her kitten tennis shoes.
Sonya Sun explores the many paths in front of her, in search for something more. Something that can help better her in career, and as well as make her happy. Sonya has always been intrigued by the challenges of someday running her own business. Coming from a hospitality management background, Sonya infuses her knowledge of business with her love of fashion. Sonya wishes to find a path that would lead her to be independent. Even if that meant changing her path to find what she wants in the end. Driven by the desire to learn more about the fashion industry, Sonya decided to pursue her studies further at Academy of Art in San Francisco. An artistic experience that will help Sonya to emerge as a fashion student and contribute to the creation and execution of fresh ideas. Sonya began her graduate career as a fashion merchandising student. Later, she decided to take her study of fashion into the fashion journalism direction.
“I have been trying out this new career path and my world has become more colorful because of my choice. I believe that fashion is all about relying on and trusting in oneself”.
