Sara Barač is a mixed ethnic Bosnian-American who never stops asking questions, whether it’s through poetry or academics. She is passionate about the power of curiosity to foster compassion.
After a year interning with the Vibrant Village Foundation in Ecuador, she went on to earn a degree in International Studies. During her time at Sarah Lawrence College, she competed in the national College Union Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI), translated Croatian poetry for the translation journal Babel, was in the executive committee of student senate as parliamentarian, worked as a tutor for America Reads, and studied abroad in Cuba and Japan.
After her time working with community-focused organizations such as New York’s RAD Program, Christensen Legal PLLC, Her Justice, and now as a translator for Critical Resistance, she is preparing to attend law school and hopes to make a change, one small step at a time.
