Sarah graduated in May 2017 with BAs in Theatre and Arts Administration, as well as a Studio Art minor (fiber arts emphasis) from the University of Kentucky. During her undergraduate, she focused on technical theatre, stage-managing several of the Theatre & Dance, and the Opera departments' main-stage performances. She was also interested in interdisciplinary research, using the arts as an advocacy platform for social issues. Sarah, originally from Alexandria Egypt, has spent her life traveling and has lived on four different continents. This has fueled her passion for theatre as a universal educational platform and its power for social change. Inspired by Post-Colonial studies, Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed as well as being an avid environmentalist and feminist, Sarah's Masters research at the University of Colorado Boulder focuses on the representation of Arab women in theatre, particularly outlining applied theatre as a mechanism for women's vocal empowerment, ensuring their involvement in sustainable development, and encouraging them to become active agents of social change within their communities.

Sarah is a member of Performers Without BordersPerformance As Resource; and Inside the Greenhouse. She also severs as the United Government of Graduate Students (UGGS) Vice President of Communications as well as the Department of Theatre and Dance UGGS Representative.
