Sonal was born in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and came to Canada in 2007 for studies. She completed her Master in Divinity at Regis College in the spring of 2014. In June of that same year she joined the Chaplaincy team of Newman Centre in Toronto as the Associate Director of Formation and Programs where she supports university students through faith formation and empowers them to become student leaders working for the greater glory of God. Ministry on a university campus gives her the unique privilege to engage students intellectually and also show them that their faith and academics are not unrelated. In her spare time, Sonal enjoys walking around the city of Toronto and sharing her love of puns.
