Dear Sonia, i had the opportunity to work with you in a group from overseas and you were exceptionally professional. The way you took care of the clients and their needs was outstanding and they still remember their visit to South Africa. I am sure you will be soon back in the industry and even stronger as the capacity you have to work with people is priceless. I wish you all the best and i am sure you will succeed in everything you take in your hands. Until soon... very soon!

Mi querida Sonia, no me puedo imaginar regresar al trabajo y que tu no estes ahi, has sido una gran compañera de trabajo, mi consejera, mi metntora en todos los años que he estado en Thompsons. Has sido un gran ejemplo a seguir para mi, la manera en que luchas por lo que quieres con esa pasion que pones en todo, sobre todo tu trabajo. Sé que vas a sobresalir en cualquier cosa que hagas después de esto.
