Chicago native, Sonia Arciniega, was born to Mexican immigrant parents. She witnessed the hardships that her family faced as she grew up in the inner city. Early in life, at the age of 8, Sonia proudly proclaimed to her parents that she would work for Univision, the television station that provided her family with the information they relied on to confront everyday obstacles.

Sonia prepared for her career by successfully graduating with honors from Columbia College. She was also chosen by the former President of Columbia College to attend the launch of TeleFutura, a Univision endeavor, now known as Unimas. Sonia had achieved her dream and was hired by Univision Chicago as an Assignment Desk Editor immediately after graduation.

Sonia also serves on the board of MENTEE, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to mentor immigrant and refugee students within the City of Chicago.
