“Sonia’s multicultural background and creativity has given her a keen ability to bring diverse people together and connect the dots between ideas, people and disciplines.”

Ted Turner

“Sonia was able to connect us with just some of the hundreds of journalists around the globe that she’s in contact with. Her insight into international journalism and the future of news in general was invaluable.”

“The initial training and subsequent follow-ups have helped my news team transition onto the global stage, and reimage how Bahamian audiences watch news in this market. Global Media Connections changed how we approach the art of story-telling and news production. It is by far the best investment in human capital we have made as a news organization. Over these many years, Sonia has remained a beacon for so many of us, in small seemingly “lightweight” news markets. The on-going training has brought confidence to my team and equipped us with the skills to elevate Our News to a world-class product.”

“I met Sonia when I attended a CNN Fellowship.  I reported live from Ukraine and Sonia took time and wrote me every single day, encouraging me and wishing me to return home safely.

She arranged for me an interview with Mr. Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kyiv. This professional opportunity is of real importance to me. She watched me grow professionally and supported me every step of the way.”
