Sarah is the POINT Office Administrator, Madison's right-hand lady, and basically a gift from God to all of us- she keeps POINT running! I have never met anyone more organized and on top of their game. Nor have I ever met anyone as consistently, infectiously positive and upbeat. Sarah is truly an asset to the team, and I happily introduce her to all of you as well.
Q: POINT is about connecting people to the causes that they care for. What cause are you most passionate about, and why?
A: When I was 14, I went to Haiti on a mission trip with a group from my church. This was such an eye-opening experience to me, and I came back to the states full of inspiration and passion to help those less fortunate. Because of this experience, I am very passionate about poverty in general, but primarily those children (like I saw in Haiti) that wake up every morning unsure of where their food is going to come from. I’m determined to work to help improve the lives of people like these.
Q: What inspires you?
A: Ultimately, what inspires me is the people I am surrounded with. I am such a people-person, and I can pick up on the positive (or negative) energy of those I’m working with right away. That’s why I love POINT, because everyone is so passionate about one ultimate goal, and I thrive off of those attitudes.
Q: Why POINT?
A: POINT is such a unique concept, and I love the fact that the organization makes the donating process easy and accessible to anyone. It’s organizations like these that we need more of in our world today!
Q: Tell me about the first time you did something to serve others.
A: I’ve always prided myself in my willingness to help others, but if I’m being totally honest, I didn’t understand the concept of selfless giving until my trip to Haiti in the summer of 2009. This was the beginning of my overwhelming passion to help those less fortunate and not expect anything in return.
Q: What is your favorite book?
A: The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
Q: What is your favorite sound?
A: The Ocean!
Q: What do you think is the closest thing to magic in the world?
A: Feeling happy without anything triggering the feeling. Simply being content with the world, despite the circumstances. It’s the best.
