Sarah (Saw-rah)'s 3 wicked fun facts...
If you had to describe your personal aesthetic, what would it be?
Business Baddie. That's it, that's the answer.
What's your favourite piece of advice?
I have two! "Prepare for the worst, hope for the best!", which helps me work through difficult situations and "Some people just deserve to get their feelings hurt" - shout-out to Fezco from Euphoria for justifying my Scorpio tendencies!
If you could spend 24 hours with one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be?
I would really love to spend time with the late great bell hooks because her teachings have shaped my personal beliefs in ways I can't even describe. I would make her chai and pick flowers with her.
