Sonia Kulkarni actually epitomizes what @notjustaunty stands for: being a Wonder Woman over 40! Sonia is 48 and she does all the above, besides being a prolific writer, traveler, blogger and advisor to united single parent’s community.
Sonia had to pick up her life after giving twenty years to a marriage which failed, and reclaim her health after a severe battle with thyroid.
She was deservingly chosen as a Pinkathon Ambassador by actor Milind Soman, and became fitness influencer and long-distance runner soon after.
(She walks the talk, actually runs! Sonia has run 100 miles from Mumbai to Pune to spread the message of women empowerment through fitness and health.)
She is also a social media influencer and a TEDx speaker too, you could listen to her very inspiring talk here https://youtu.be/3uUJS8gIL1Q.
She has also received the following awards :
• Star Sports “Belief Hero”
• Women Icon’s Award by BERG Singapore,
• Women Excellence Award by Indian Achiever’s Forum
• and has received recognition by E4M as Top 100 most influential game changers in the communication industry, 2nd year in a row!
