Sarah is 17 years old and a four-year varsity athlete who plays basketball. She has also played as a shooting guard on United’s Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team in cities such as Chicago, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Atlanta. Along with her interest in sports, Sarah is passionate about studying neuroscience. She holds a position researching the proteins involved in the brain functioning of autism spectrum disorder patients in the Children Health Institute of New Jersey (CHINJ) program. Sarah wants to eventually get a Ph.D. in neuroscience and break new ground in the field. She also works as a peer leader at her school where she assists fellow students.
