  • “How many of us just ‘want to’ and not think ‘action’? A 26-year-old does more and beyond. Thank you, Sarah, that was the most powerful speech I have ever heard.”

You are so inspirational and from the moment I heard you speak, I knew I needed to be involved in helping you in any way I can.”

  • “Sarah’s talk to our Year 12 students had them gripped as she weaved through her own life, from childhood through to the fantastic work of Sparkle today. Her manner and tone was personable and oozed with the commitment she clearly has to her cause which left an impression on the students as many stayed to talk to her with questions about careers, travelling and how to work in partnership with Sparkle. It was wonderful to see so many of our young people touched by Sarah’s story; there was a real buzz amongst the students following her visit which has been a springboard to motivate many of our young people.”

    Zoe Fisher, Vice Principal, Wymondham College
  • “Sarah, the way that you speak is a real gift because you have a way of portraying pictures with your words making it all more powerful. You have such a clear vision not only of where you are going but also the journey you have paved. I just feel so proud that you came into our paths because your star is very bright and as you shine on others it is contagious, you are a true inspiration.”
