Sonia Morris, Isle Madame
“It makes my heart sing the way people pull together, this is an amazing community.”
Sonia Morris was drawn to Cape Breton. She says the signs were there, and she followed their lead. Sonia was at one of her lowest points. Her mother was terminally ill, she was suffering pyschological abuse from a partner and wanted to end her own life. Her father then asked if she wanted to pursue her dream and go to Canada. She did. “The friendliness of this community, the view, the landscape, the ocean. A multitude of things drew me here,” says Sonia. She worked three jobs as she was getting settled, and wants to pursue her dream of starting a youth sports club for children with learning disabilities and intellectual needs. She relishes her new life, and the amazing community in which she lives in Richmond County. “It makes my heart sing to see how people pull together,” says Sonia. For Sonia, her new start couldn’t have come at a better time. “Belonging is home. This is home,” says Sonia.
