Sarah Young

Sarah graduated from Western University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology. Throughout her time as an undergraduate student, Sarah enjoyed courses related to the social impact of sport and volunteered much of her time with organizations such as motionball, Best Buddies, and Special Olympics. It was a combination of her love of learning and volunteer work alongside individuals with intellectual disabilities that inspired Sarah to return to Western and complete her master’s degree in Sociocultural Kinesiology. Sarah’s research focused on the parental experiences of those who have children participating in Special Olympics programs. As of May 2021, Sarah has been employed at Motionball for Special Olympics where she currently works as an Event Specialist.
