About Sarah

I am an aspiring director, videographer, screenwriter, and cinematographer. I love to excel in graphic design and photography as well - in all Adobe platforms. I recently graduated a year early from high school due to academic excellence.

Throughout the three years of high school, I’ve won awards in my production department - including recognition from the entire technical department for my consistent work. I've been honored as a motivational speaker in my school to promote the arts. I've recently applied for a TED Talk Fellowship position.

I have given a few speeches to underclassmen and helped assist teaching classes (how to use equipment, editing, audio editing, and storytelling). I won gold in TV Production for SkillsUSA for the second time in my state.

This past gap year I've had the opportunity to travel to Florence, Italy for an entire semester and work one on one with the community and my professor in filmmaking and editing.

I entered many festivals and had won and have been official selections for my screenplays. I am also working on my book that I plan on publishing, The Highly Functional. All of which I design concept art for including marketing and posters. I will be attending The School of Visual Arts, New York City, New York to major in Directing as a female.
