Sarah Sasson

Assigned to Manhattan community, From Brooklyn, NY


Sarah Sasson is currently a sophomore at Barnard College studying History and Jewish Studies and is working towards a minor in Psychology as well. Prior to her time at Barnard, she attended Yeshivah of Flatbush and then continued on to take a gap year at Shaalvim for Women. Sarah is currently exploring her interests in history but in the long run, hopes to continue her education journey by becoming a teacher– in special ed, regular ed, or Jewish education. Much of her prior experience involves working with special needs children, as well as Jewish teens through NCSY GIVE, NCSY NY, and those in her own community. Sarah’s dream free time activity would be to go on a beautiful hike, have an awesome chevruta on the top of a mountain while enjoying the views, and then break out into a rockin’ chagiga… but toning it down to NYC she enjoys taking the time to appreciate the nature around her while listening to her Jewish music playlist, trying to make the average day filled with gratitude and happiness
