Meet Sonia Andujar
“Everything is focused on improving tenant’s lives. It’s not meeting just to meet.”
“Creative”, “active”, and “a little bit crazy” are all words that Sonia Andujar says her family and friends would use to describe her. A Cambridge public housing resident since 1992, Sonia came to the US from Puerto Rico at the age of 13.
While living in the South End as a teenager, she got involved with Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA) and met Mel King through her work there. She first got involved with the Public Housing Training Program (PHTP) in 2018 after finding the Mel King Institute on the internet. Sonia graduated from PHTP and has since become a trainer for the program herself.
