As a digital product and marketing executive, TedX speaker and an advocate for a world free of diet-related disease, Sonia Hunt personifies Love in Action. She's obsessed with stories - tales of people, places and experiences shared over delicious meals while creating memories to be retold to future generations.
"You can see the fire in a person's eyes unfold as they share a bit of themselves with you," she says.
Though she's suffered from food allergies since she was a child, they've never stopped her from exploring culinary traditions around the world. She's traveled to more than 150 cities in more than 20 countries, immersing herself in the food culture of each place she visits. "The first thing I do on the road is to go for a run, breathe in the smells of the street, wave to people and try all the different foods the city has to offer," she says.
Sonia is currently working on her first book, based on her personal story and designed to help people with food restrictions "Stay Safe, Live Healthy and Eat Well," her motto.
We can't wait to share our next meal with this inspiring new friend and wonderful brand champion.

How do you define Love in Action?: Love in Action is doing what moves you, what fills you, what makes you overflow with joy. Own it - you are allowed and capable.
My life has been a true evolution to a higher state of consciousness...only I didn't know it until about eight years ago. Every experience, every person, every smile, every journey that touched my life has made me into who I am today - a person driven to learn, grow, help, empower, love, give light. This is the story of my life.
What social causes are most important to you?: A world free from diet-related disease is my vision. But it's more than just about the food we put into our bodies. It's the body, mind, spirit and emotions all coming together for a life with intent and purpose.
