While at UMass, what drew Sarah to the English major initially was her love of reading and literature. She loves participating in small discussion-based classes, writing absolutely riveting rhetorical analysis papers, and picking apart a passage word by word. When asked about her experience in being an English major at UMass, Sarah responded, “What I love about the English major is that you have freedom to argue any point, as long as you have the evidence to back it up. My English education has helped me refine my written and communication skills, as well as my research and critical thinking practices. I’ve also come into contact with amazing professors and faculty in the department who are really passionate about helping their students succeed."

Sarah was also a member of the 2021-2022 Student Advisory Board. While in this role, Sarah said, "Through taking English classes at UMass, I’ve become confident in my ability to write well, and I feel thankful that my education allows me to continuously work on my craft. I’m excited to serve on SAB, and I can’t wait to help other students find their way in the English major!”
