Every hero has a story and today, Vibes Radio’s Woman 2 Woman show recognized a hero or a she-ro in the form of Sonia Felix.

Ms Felix who is recognized for going above the call of duty with an incomparable energy for community awareness and an obvious mission to help keep our community clean, beautiful, and safe was greeted on the streets of Roseau by the Woman2Woman show.

With today being World Environmental Day, we caught up with Sonia Felix to express our gratitude.

Sonia was presented with a fruit basket as well as a cash donation. Sonia, a member of The Roseau Litter Management Crew accepted the gifts with deep sentiment.

“I’m a very emotional person.  I appreciate all what is being done for me but I wasn’t expecting it,” she said adding “Thanks to the Almighty Father and thanks to one of my mentors, Miriam Blanchard, one of my dearest friends.”

Sonia also wanted to make an appeal to the community of Roseau to learn to control garbage disposal.

“I am always telling people cleanliness begins with each one of us.”

She went on to say “Let us try our best to keep the city clean.”

Sonia encourages each member of his or her community to work together to make the extra effort to keep their respective community clean.

This year’s theme of World Environment Day 2020 is ‘Celebrate Biodiversity.’
