Sarah is a DIU graduate who loves the school from three years’ experience as a student and worker on the campus. She completed her BA in International Service, minoring in Linguistics, at the end of 2020 and continues on as Administrative Assistant while her husband is finishing his studies here at DIU.
Cross-cultural experience is a part of her composition. Her paternal grandparents worked cross-culturally in Colombia where her father was born. He, in turn, raised his own family partially in Central America, where Sarah was born. Although she came to the US as a young child, she still cherishes her partial Honduran nationality and would happily recommend a certain Honduran restaurant in Dallas to anyone who asks. Her Korean sister-in-law inspired a 9-month study visit in South Korea during college, and more recently she enjoyed a few months in West Africa.
The Lord God brought Sarah into his arms around 2008. She had a lot of things to unlearn about Him, and He has been incredibly faithful and patient in demonstrating His love personally for her since then. He continues to be her hardiest friend and the most dependable element in her life. His most recent gift is her wonderful husband, Wil. Jesus Christ is an increasingly curious figure in her life whom she thought she knew well, but finds it is not so, and she would like to know Him better.
Sarah enjoys interacting with her 20 nieces and nephews (total), the friendship of 7 siblings, making outsiders feel welcome, learning languages, playing with kids, philosophy, chewing the fat with her mother and father, discovering unforeseen depths in others’ characters and stories, baking, acting, and reading centuries-old novels and other types of literature. She doesn’t enjoy listing off her accomplishments or writing autobiographies, but she recognizes that life is not entirely composed of enjoyment and that is a jolly good thing for all of us.
