In this session, you will learn:

  • Personal safety

  • Mental health/Internet tips

  • How to protect your future self (as a comment-er and a comment-ee)

  • What our society values as "acceptable" and how to challenge those norms



About Sonja

Sonja

Condemned as an Udinese supporter since birth, Sonja’s love for the beautiful game has turned her into both a masochist and a megalomaniac, depending on the day. When not being self-deprecating and/or self-righteous, she types, talks, and tweets for various soccer outlets around the globe. This includes (but is not limited to) The Guardian, CBC, BBC, Canadian Premier League, TLN, Metro UK, and being the co-founder of Unusual Efforts, a multimedia digital company that provide the tools to expand networks, while redefining the commonly held image of the “football expert.”
