She attended Duke School before that, an independent school where she <br /> learned to think creatively. Duke School's curriculum was based in project work and presentation, so <br /> she became comfortable with being onstage. In her free time, she reads and listens to music. And, of <br /> course, she writes. Writing is many things for Sonya-- a de-stresser, an outlet, a vessel, a gift. <br /> Writing helps her remember things she doesn't want to forget, and forget things she wishes she <br /> didn't remember. She writes mostly poetry and short stories. Lately, she's been experimenting with <br /> songwriting-- she plays the drums in a band, and they plan on performing some original songs. Even <br /> though her favorite season is fall, she loves the summer because there's so much more time to write. <br /> Often, she meets people or find places that inspire her and her writing. <br /> 2.
