Sarah is currently a junior at Georgetown majoring in Political Economy and minoring in Women & Gender Studies. She loves DC, but is originally from Charlotte.

Sarah was able to explore these interests recently by serving as co-treasurer of Delta Phi Epsilon, a professional foreign service sorority, and interning for her district's representative. She is about to travel to Cameroon to study development and social change, and loves to scrapbook so looks forward to adding some new pages of fun!
