Sarah Jane Jimenez

Sarah Jane is passionate about appreciating the duality of life. There is so much to learn when we are able to see value in the opposing aspects of life. She is driven by the power of community, protecting nature, and self-discovery. Sarah Jane's goals for this year are to immerse in and absorb the culture, and to let down her self-made walls to truly open up to others. Her favorite quote is "the unexamined life is not worth living" by Socrates.
