Where does Slovakia belong on the geopolitical map? How does it deal with issues such as the war in Ukraine, immigration and foreign policy? Sona tries to find answers to all of these questions in her work.

She continued her academic journey in London, where she got a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing. She started out as a journalist in 2018, working for several Slovak internet platforms.
