“We have this inherent power as journalists because when people tell us a story, we are the ones that get to decide how it’s processed and distributed. That’s a huge responsibility and I take it really seriously.~ Sarah Venture

That’s the spirit with which Sarah Ventre does her work, because finding truth and perspective is her mission.

Raised in Phoenix by an interfaith family, Sarah always wanted to be an archaeologist, until she later realized that studying the living was more her drive and heartbeat.

In this episode, Sarah shares the ups and downs of doing all that she possibly could to pursue her passion of storytelling. Her advent from working in an archeology lab to impacting communities by telling their stories and shining a light on their cultures will inspire both awe and admiration of the tenacious journalist that Sarah is.
