A French and environmental studies double major with a Five College Certificate in African Studies, Sarah is originally from Lexington, MA. Her junior year was spent abroad in Montpellier, France, and she traveled to Senegal, Africa, for the 2007 J-term. At some point Sarah would like to return to Senegal to work with a grassroots organization, particularly in women's empowerment and development, or to teach English. She would also love to have an opportunity to return to France as well! Sarah will greatly miss Mount Holyoke’ French department and is grateful for their support in helping her to develop a love all things French and for encouraging and supporting her study of the French language and travels in Francophone countries.
