Sarah grew up in Glenview, IL, a suburb just northwest of Chicago. Her passion for social justice and research led to pursuing Bachelor of Arts degrees in sociology and communication science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she is currently a junior. She gets the most joy spending time outside, whether that be biking in Madison's parks, canoeing on Lake Mendota (when warm enough to do so!), or traveling as much as possible to far flung natural wonders to backpack. When the cold gets in the way, she enjoys practicing yoga, hanging out with her super cool cat Gio, and jamming to funky tunes. She hopes to do her part to make the world a more compassionate, humane place.
