Sara Rollins

Im Sara, and I’m doing a 2019 AT Flip-Flop attempt. I’m a 26 year old woman from West Virginia fiercely dedicated to my personal, spiritual, emotional and physical growth. I generally view life with a good sense of humor, and I take not-taking-life-too-seriously pretty seriously. I have a background in music, yoga, and education and I’m searching for a career path that doesn’t feel like it’s stomping the spirit out of me. I enjoy sharing my life with people in the hopes that it brings a little more honesty, light, and good humor into the world.
