About the Author: Sonya terBorg


A mom, educator, designer, creator. I care about kindness, representation, equality, and making a positive contribution. I began teaching in 1997 in New Zealand and have since taught from Grade 1 through Grade 10 across four continents.

An advocate for student-driven action, I am the proud supporter of the Nanjing International School Precious Plastics group - a student group dedicated to the repurposing of plastic in our community and support students in their quest for a shift toward gender equality and equal representation.
