When put in ballet classes at age seven to help straighten her legs, Sonia Jackson discovered she loved performing. That same year, she wrote, directed and performed in her first Christmas pageant. In school, it was math and dance or dance and math.
After graduating from Chapman College in Orange, California with a BA in Sociology, Sonia entered the corporate world in Human Resources in industries like banking and aerospace. Still, the performance world beckoned so she added stand-up to her list and hit the stage as a comedienne. Once bitten by the performance bug, Sonia jumped in. She put her house up for rent to be free to pursue acting full-time. This action also spawned another opportunity: real estate investing, a career where she continues to advance.
Having entered the entertainment industry somewhat past the age of ingénue, Sonia felt a need to introduce herself in a memorable way, so she created a one-woman project called I’m Gonna Fly. Since then, she continues to expand in her acting and performance career creating projects like Conversations ‘Bout the Girls.
Sonia knows that it is through her spirituality that her life works and as a Practitioner at Agape International Spiritual Center she has strengthened her foundation for assisting others in realizing their dreams. As a long-time member of the Agape International Spiritual Center, some of her service activities include the Young Women’s Mentoring Program, the Agape International Choir, the Prayer Ministry, the Practitioner Core, workshops and a host of other events. Sonia joyously continues to expand her consciousness through continued study of spiritual principles.
An artist, a businesswoman and an entrepreneur, Sonia Jackson brings this strong and diverse track record everywhere she goes and to everything she does.
