For her work in public affairs, she was named a 2021 Public Service Scholar by the national Phi Beta Kappa organization. Sarah’s passion for U.S. - UK foreign relations stemmed from her study abroad with the USF Honors College in London in 2019, where she studied the U.S.-UK Special Relationship and British national identity, and was awarded USF in London’s Academic Excellence Award. In the fall of 2021, Sarah put her knowledge to work through a travel grant with USF's Honors College. During her grant, she served as a political intern for Brevia Consulting, a London based public affairs consulting firm, analyzing debate in Parliament. During her Fulbright at Royal Holloway, Sarah will study campaigns, elections, and democracy, focusing on comparative democratic electoral systems. She hopes to contribute to innovative approaches and reforms to campaign policy to strengthen both developed and developing democratic institutions.
