Hey y’all, I’m Sara.

I’m a journalism and political science major at UNC-Chapel Hill. I’m from Mount Airy, NC  – Andy Griffith’s hometown nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have written for The Daily Tar HeelOur State Magazine, The Tab, and student publications within the journalism school.

Outside of writing, I am the Morale and Recruitment Chair for the Carolina for the Kids Foundation, the largest student-run non-profit in North Carolina. I also work at Sup Dogs, a hot dog restaurant that is arguably the coolest part-time job in the world. I love cats and Fleetwood Mac and getting lost in the mountains.

You will also find a few blog posts from me. Some are articles, but most are diary entries. These posts are very personal, and I often get told I’m very brave for sharing them. But honestly, I’m just doing it as a way to clear my head – it’s something I love to do, and I get a lot of satisfaction out of completing a story. But I’m so happy that people can see themselves in it.
