Bonneventia Sonia Thandi Kerileng Pule was born in Pimville, Soweto and she also lived in Orange Farm for most of her High School years. Her modelling career began in 1998 and her profile was elevated after she was selected to represent Southern Africa in the Mnet Face of Africa competition in 1999. She was crowned 2nd runner-up in the Miss South Africa 2001 beauty pageant and in 2011 and 2012 she was selected to adjudicate the same pageants.

Sonia is fluent in 6 South African languages and is currently learning Russian, emanating from 6 years living in Russia. In 2006 she graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, majoring in Marketing & Business Management.

2008 saw Sonia venturing into the business world when she founded Booth Sports: a sports merchandising close-corporation and Bonneventia S: a footwear manufacturing and retailing company. She was awarded the Best Innovation Award at the SAB Kickstart Awards in 2011. She was also a participant in the Making Moves television program which profiles businesses in South Africa.

In 2009, she and her husband Matthew founded The Booth Education & Sports Trust: a non-profit public benefit organisation that focuses on educational interventions, football Coaching Clinics and mentorship/empowerment initiatives.

The 2010 World Cup presented many opportunities for Sonia, the highlight being the weekly column she wrote for The Star, Cape Argus, Mercury and Isolezwe newspapers. Moreover, she has been profiled on numerous TV shows/programmes including Top Billing, My Top 10 at 10 Mzansi Magic, Pasella, Expresso Show, Mzansi Insider, 3Talk, Felicia Mabuza-Suttle show, Redi Thlabi Talk Show, Afternoon Express to name but a few. She has also graced the covers of Sandton, Mamas & Papas, True Love, Real, Get It and the Ackermans magazines. The public’s interest on her profile has led to interviews for Destiny, Joburg Style, Sandton, Women & Home, You, Drum, True Love, Real, Glamour, Marie Claire, Fairlady, Essays Of Africa, Citizen, The Star, City Press, Sunday Times, Sunday Independent, etc.

Booth added the title of Author to her CV by publishing How To Reinvent Yourself And Stay Relevant in November 2014. This was followed by a successful book launch at the Connaught Rooms in London where she was awarded The Reinvent Yourself Coach Award. This award affords her the platform to share her knowledge and expertise on The Art Of Reinvention. Her Johannesburg launch was held on 24 April 2015 in Hyde Park and the media coverage included Eye Witness News (EWN), Love PSL, Buzz (ANN7) and Real Goboza (RGB) television shows. She published her second book titled Surviving ICU (a memoir) in March 2017 and 2 Years Of Bliss 18 Years Of Batter in December 2021. Sonia is finalising two other titles: Black Tax and Sodom & Gomorrah.

Modelling prepared her for the stage, cameras and audiences, this makes her 'bookable' and 'bankable' as an MC and speaker. Moreover, her blog: Opinion Booth and varying book titles provide her with ever flowing relevant content.

May 2017 saw Sonia being introduced to talk radio as the host of Opinion Booth on

The Level 5 lockdown (due to Covid-19) afforded Sonia the time and opportunity to study
Rhetoric: The Art of Persuasive Writing and Public Speaking through the Harvard University's edX Online platform. A certificate completed and passed with distinction.
