Hi! I'm Sarah
I'm 15 years old
What was your favourite part of filming Embrace Kids?
My favourite part of filming Embrace Kids was hanging around the set and meeting new people. I really liked the dynamic of the group and enjoyed making friends with some of the older kids.
What do you like most about yourself right now?
Right now, I’m enjoying how strong I’m feeling. I have been training for nationals 2023 for my sport and that means a LOT of training. However, I’m definitely enjoying the added exercise and the benefits that come with it.
What makes you unique?
One of the things that makes me unique is my ability to turn bad thoughts into positive ones, and always be optimistic. It’s important to remember that you only live once, and not to spend time dwelling on the small stuff.
What is one piece of advice you would give to adults?
One piece of advice that I would give to adults is to not let small things like insecurity get in the way of enjoying big things, like spending time with family and friends or seeing the world. It’s not worth missing out on.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Telekinesis for sure. No reason, I just think it would be cool.
If a friend asks you to keep a secret that you don't feel comfortable keeping, what would you do?
Reevaluate the situation. Is someone going to be in danger if you keep the secret? Think about it and if you feel the need to, pass the secret on to a trusted adult and get their advice on it. If your friend gets mad at you for trying to keep them safe, physically or emotionally, then they aren’t a friend worth keeping.
How do you overcome challenges?
I break them down into smaller chunks and tackle them one by one. This could mean making a to do list, or setting dates and times for when I want to have certain parts of the task done by.
Do you feel pressure from your peers to look or dress a certain way and if so, how do you cope with this?
I think that everyone feels a little bit of pressure to dress or act a certain way from the people around them, but what matters is how you deal with it. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, whether that means expressing yourself or dressing like those around you. The most important thing is that it’s what you want to do.
Do you think it is healthy to compare yourself to others? Please explain why.
No, I don’t think it’s healthy, but it’s something we all do whether we’d like to admit it or not. I think the most important thing to do in those situations is remind yourself that not everything you see online is real, and that you look your best when you’re smiling and having fun.
How would you encourage others to Embrace their bodies?
Change your mindset. Don’t look at your body as something that has to look a certain way to be accepted by society, but rather as a vessel that allows you to experience life. I promise you that in the scheme of life, appearance doesn’t matter, and it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
