Excited with this new milestone and recognition, Sonia Jain commented, “This is indeed a very big deal for me and I am thankful to all the opportunities that I have received. When you are passionate and believe in something/ anything so strongly it works as your strength and pulls you up to make you a stronger and better person. That’s exactly how I feel about my sport. My passion keeps me happy, healthy and focused. I have been in this profession for 8 years and I look forward to learn something new every day. I still have a long way to go and many new roads to tread.”
