About Sonya Dekhtyar
Sonya is a former member of the Ensemble Espanol Youth Dance Company and has been dancing flamenco for 14 years.

Next summer, she will be interning at the investment bank William Blair.
Before returning to school, Sonya worked as a senior performance management analyst at the Chicago Transit Authority, where she coordinated and implemented strategic initiatives for facilities, vehicles, and warehouses, and drove key environmental and sustainability efficiencies.
Sonya is also a board member with the Steep Theatre in Edgewater, where she served as treasurer last year. You can find more information about her work and academic experiences at LinkedIn
