I had the pleasure of working as a research assistant for Sonja’s dissertation study at UC Irvine. Under her guidance, I was introduced to qualitative research for the first time, and it led me to become interested in research myself. She pays a great attention to detail and shows amazing leadership skills, especially when working with students. I particularly admire her passion for international student services and her previous experiences within the field. Most importantly, I appreciate that she advocates for students and shares her knowledge with them. [LinkedIn]
