Sarah Wordhouse

Sarah Wordhouse, Public Relations Manager

Sarah is a senior and entering her second year as a writer for The Central Trend. During her free time, she likes taking drives and finding hidden gems of places, thrift shopping, record buying, and going out for brunch. She loves watching TV shows such as Jane the Virgin but loves getting lost in books even more. 

Favorite part of being on staff: Exploring new writing techniques, finding my voice, and meeting the wonderful people a part of it.

Favorite types of stories: Columns

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing (duh), belting out songs and dancing to them, binge-watching any and everything, and snuggling with dogs.

Favorite book and why: I love the Storm and Silence series because it has all of my favorite aspects of books in one.

It's a Friday night, you will usually find Sarah: Either at her friend's house or finding new worlds inside of words (AKA reading).
