Sarah is a 17- year old student-author who derives her inspiration for writing from her life-long love of reading and poetry. Reading introduced her to people, places and ideas that would forever be a part of her and the conversation with her family and friends. She has written several poems and stories, including a book in the 7th grade titled Sunrise…Sunset. The story encompassed the lives of characters learning the importance of treating every moment like it will be their last, and cherishing their time on earth. Sarah also enjoys running, playing the piano and helping others as she tutors at a local shelter and elementary school.
