Sonia had a chance to witness shooting in one of her school camps and instantly developed an interest for the sport. However, she stopped playing the sport due to her father’s illness and resumed playing again in 2015.
Sonia used to rely on YouTube videos to educate herself and despite not having the best training facilities, she has won medals at National Shooting Championships and finished 6th at the 2017 Shooting World Cup in UAE.
Her promising performance in Dubai saw her shortlisted and eventually selected for support under the GoSports Foundation Para Champions Programme 2017-18.
