HUMANS OF THE DRAKE: MEET SONIA

Posted by Drake General Store, 1 year, 10 months ago

Introducing: HUMANS OF THE DRAKE. Every week, we will profile a member of our team, their favourite holiday traditions and most coveted wish list items.

Meet Sonia.

She is new to DGS this year, acting as the store supervisor for our brand new Vancouver location in the Hudson's Bay Granville TOPSHOP. She is 23 and a Native West Coaster (but lived in Toronto for four years!) For some reason thought a Bachelors Degree in Sexuality Studies and minor in English Lit was a good idea... (her words, not ours). She is a lover of all things garage rock and punk and has been with Drake for just over two months.
