Sarah Wagner visited eight European countries during her year abroad in England, Sarah’s best friend crowned her ‘expert traveler.’ Europe did not satiate Sarah’s passion for journeying to unfamiliar lands; in fact, it was just the beginning.  During her undergraduate career, Sarah worked in a women’s shelter in Ciudad Juarez and studied in Chile, Costa Rica, and Mexico City.  Between her undergraduate and graduate studies, she worked as a research assistant in Colombia and a journalist in Venezuela.  Conducting field research on decentralization in El Salvador and completing an intensive Portuguese language course in Fortaleza, Brazil were the highlights of her M.A. in Global Political Economy.  When Sarah is not planning her next international excursion – this time to Mozambique and Kenya – you can find her ice skating, hiking, or playing in the sprinkler at Mellon Park.  Sarah also enjoys whitewater rafting and horseback riding.
