Her name rolls off your tongue with ease. "S-squared" names carry heavy importance, an accidental demand for extra attention. Ironically, Sarah refuses the latter. We were accompanied by her mother and her older sister Rachel, who if it weren't for her moments of sheer wackiness, my guess is Sarah would have remained comfortably in her shell. Thank goodness for la familia.
Inspired by the authors of trendy, young-adult books, focused on love and heartbreak, Sarah has developed a yearning to delve into journalism. She'll take her talents to ASU where she'll pursue that passion. She told me she'd "maybe like to be an author". Though she might seem shaky on her future career plan, I firmly believe she is a lover of books and has an aptitude for creative writing. She also adores nature and the outdoors. She's a devout hiker, and has a willingness to stay in shape. Her family are no strangers to the lake life, and wake-boarding, and she also owns a bike that is more precious than an American Girl doll. If a Care Bear lived near the beach, they'd own her bike. Her teeth are flawless, which makes it impossible not to love her smile. She is reserved but open enough to let out a famous Schaefer snort if the joke is right. She is more pure than peach pie. The world needs more dessert just like her. This is Sarah Schaefer, and she's been Liberated.
