This past summer, she served Access ASU as a Summer Programs Liaison through AmeriCorps. Access ASU is dedicated to increasing access to higher education and preparing Arizona students for success through family engagement and strategic K-12 education and community partnerships.

Sara says, "None of this would have been possible without support from my family, friends and amazing organizations like Alisa's Angels.Thank you Alisa's Angels for not only being a financial support through my college career but also giving me a second family."
