Sonya Woodard is a born again Christian and have been walking with the Lord for over 20 years. She is a graduate of Miami Springs Senior High and went on to attend Miami-Dade College where she received her Associate Arts Degree in Business Administration. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s in Business Management from Florida Atlantic University. Sonya is an entrepreneur at heart. She's the business owner of Business Credit Professional, Inc., where she has been servicing small business owners for the past 12 years. She's the wife of Minister Terry J. Woodard and the mother of four beautiful children Brittany, Ashley, Kayla, and Terrik. As a young lady, Sonya made many poor choices that resulted in her becoming the mother of two by the age of 17. Because she understands the behaviors, thoughts, and perceptions that led to her choices as a youth, she knows what it takes to help other young ladies avoid making the same choices. Sonya accepted Jesus Christ in her heart at the age of twenty. It was then she was connected to her former pastor and mentor Apostle Dr. Iris J. Troy who God use to guide and render wise counsel over the years that has helped her to find her unique purpose, never to give up, and to know there's greatness on the inside of her.
Sonya is in the position to help other young ladies with backgrounds like hers. She's grateful for the guidance and wants to use her experiences and education to impact the lives of other young ladies. Sonya’s passion is to see young girls flourish to purpose driven women. She believes knowing your purpose is very important. The Bible says “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is The Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21. We have many plans for our life, but ultimately it's The Lord purpose that will triumph. It's never to late to fulfill your purpose. It's not where you start, but where you finish that matters. True transformation begins in the heart and is completely done through Jesus Christ. Sonya believes transformation is available to everyone that’s willing to have faith by putting in the hard work and dedication. For the past 15 years Sonya has worked with youth to share her testimony of what comes along once understanding of one’s purpose is in sight. GOT’s activities and programs compliment her testimony by equipping young ladies with the proper tools they’ll need to travel down the path of greatness.
