Meet Sarah

What are three things we should know about you?

  1. I wish I liked coffee more, but I don’t really care for it.

  2. I am not really a dog person, only when they are babies, I can deal.

  3. I’m obsessed with frozen yogurt!

 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Europe! I have been to the tropics and have enjoyed that, but I really would like to travel to Europe and see all the beautiful architecture.

 

What is your favorite quote/motto?

"Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."

- Golda Meir

 

What’s the top item checked off your bucket list?

I haven’t checked it off yet, but I'm almost there! It’s to achieve higher education. A lot of people in today’s society try to avoid higher education and get a job right out of high school. To me, earning a degree is one of the highest achievements in life that you can do for yourself. Education is the only thing in life that someone cannot take away from you and it will never go out of style.

 

Life at CofC

Campus involvement: Phi Mu!

 

What is your favorite College of Charleston memory so far?

Meeting all my beautiful sisters in my sorority. Every girl in Phi Mu has such an amazing personality and sweet, sweet heart. Our bond as sisters is so genuine. I don’t know where I would be without them. I love each one of them so much and all the memories that we share together!

 

Favorite spot on campus: Cistern, it’s so pretty out there.

 

Best thing about CofC: The location. Everyone says how much they love where Charleston is, and it is so true. Charleston is such a beautiful city, there are so many things to see and places to visit. You definitely can find something new everyday!

 

Favorite class: Econ 200 with Blackwell! I love his teaching techniques-he’s awesome!

 

Fun Facts

Favorite movie: I just saw the movie that recently came out, Southpaw. It has Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams (who is my spirit sister) in it and they did a really good job in this movie!

Favorite song: Darius Rucker, "Wagon Wheel"

Favorite TV show: KUWTK (If you don’t what it stands for then just, nevermind..)

Dream job: Running my own business somewhere, somehow in the the fashion world!
