Sarah is kind, funny, optimistic, resilient and very smart. Although I thought I knew her well before I served as her mentor for her occupational therapy doctorate project last summer, I learned during our time together that she is also extremely focused and thorough, and impressively well-organized.
The website she created as her doctorate project (shrinerschildrens.org/handdifferences) is comprehensive, useful, and user-friendly.
What impresses me most about Sarah is her passion and energy for promoting disability awareness and her efforts to eliminate the stigma of hand differences.
