Sonya acknowledges the importance of not letting stereotypes hold you back or define you: "Being a black woman means dealing with a lot of stereotypes. When your own personality defies those stereotypes, people praise it as a great thing. But what if I did act like a "stereotype"? Would that make me any lesser? Being a black woman doesn't mean I need to fit into or defy any molds. I can be or act how I want, and I can be proud of my skin and my hair and carry myself how I see fit. We all have magic in us, and how we show it is up to us."
