Hello family, friends and strangers! My name is Sarah Davidson and I’m so glad our paths have crossed!
I was born and raised in the Carolinas – spending the first half of my childhood in Simpsonville, SC and the rest of my years in Asheville, NC. Both places mean the world to me and I’m incredibly grateful to have grown up in such amazing cities.
I’m currently in my last semester at UNC-Chapel Hill – I’ve spent the last four years studying Media and Journalism with a concentration in Strategic Communication (aka advertising and public relations). Being a student in the MJ-School has been a phenomenal experience, as it has provided me with wonderful classes, professors and hands-on projects.
At twenty-two years old, I’m quite aware of how little I know – and that’s why I’m so excited for the next chapter. I hope to spend the next couple years learning, growing and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. While I aspire to do these things for the rest of my life, I see this next chapter as a springboard for truly launching my passions and career.
I hope to work in corporate communications, consulting or another job out there that lies at the crossroads of strategy, PR and client management.
Some other important things to know:
I love to travel…if you scroll down far enough you’ll find many posts from my summer spent backpacking and studying abroad in Europe.
My typical Friday night looks quite different than your average college student. I’m a volunteer leader for WyldLife (the middle school branch of Young Life) so I spend many hours mentoring local middle school students and leading events for them.
I really, really, really love ice cream. A meal is never complete without dessert – and ice cream should never be in moderation.
Last but not least, I’m a huge advocate of empathy. My upbringing, education, local and global experiences have taught me so much about the world around me, and everyday I strive to be more aware of other people. I have so much to learn and believe that entering any situation with empathy is a game-changer.
