She later became a weather presenter and reporter for BBC Look North.
In the future Sarah hopes to inspire others about the world around them, telling stories about things that most people do not get to experience in their everyday lives. Be that reporting on every future manned space mission, to the fact that people who live in Tibet cannot get a passport, simply because they are Tibetan.
