Sonita studied philosophy in Cambridge in 1985 and now she's back and making history.
She's the first black female master of Jesus College, 40 years after its first female undergraduates.
Sonita has been in the job for 16 days and is already making a difference
Sonita was head hunted by the college and beat hundreds of applicants to the job.
