Soniya Momin began her foray into the design world at a very young age. Growing up with a father who was a designer and a mother who was interested in the subject, she began working towards this career at the age of five. Having a lifetime to prepare has served Soniya well. After graduating from the International Academy of Design & Technology in Toronto with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design in 2007, she went on to earn several awards and distinctions. She was elected to be on the IIDA Breakout Young Designers panel, and won the award for ASID Design Excellence in 2012 for Turner Construction and the IIDA BOB Corporate Forum Merit for Novelis Headquarters, 2011. She is also NCIDQ and LEED certified.
In addition to being an accomplished designer, Soniya is a polyglot. She speaks English, Gujurati, Hindi, and Urdu fluently; is learning Bangla and Arabic; and hopes to improve her once-proficient Spanish skills.
