Sage is known for her amazing diving skills, for her "particularly honest" hips in belly dancing club, and for her academic prowess in biochemistry, but there is so much more to know about her! (Author's note: I am blown away by her amazing curly hair and killer smile, and may or may not have a huge girl crush on her.)

HC: What do you look for in a potential partner?SM: “Definitely someone who has a good sense of humor. He has to be sincere but can make me laugh. He also has to love Harry Potter.”
