Sandy is a college graduate with a Bachelors degree in Global Studies and is a self-professed dork who has always enjoyed learning. Her interests range from international human rights to higher education access for young people and education reform issues. She enjoys volunteering opportunities and is an AmeriCorps alumn where she worked with young adults in the mentoring field. Sandy’s pastimes include reading, dreaming about ruling the world, writing, swimming, and general goofing around with her friends. Over the course of her life Sandy has had hundreds of fractures (including those in utero), and has one rod in each tibia. Sandy primarily relies on racing around in her power wheelchair while smiling sweetly at crushed toes that get in her way.
