Sara considers listening to the stories of others to be one of her sacred duties as a nurse, and in her travels she plans to seek out the stories of refugees fleeing religious persecution and civil strife as well as the stories of those who take them in. Whether she’s pulling herself up the side of a mountain or working 12-hour shifts in the hospital, Sara is a born adventurer who looks forward to the challenge of traveling alone in Nepal, India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Turkey. She hopes that in learning about daily life around the world she will return with an increased ability to spread compassion and empathy in her path.
