Meet Sarah

I chose Creative Arts mainly for the theatre aspect, I wanted to get into acting and I wanted to figure out what it was like to share stories and learn empathy though other people's stories as well. My passion is to empower other younger Indigenous students and enable a stronger platform so they can feel strength in their identity.
