What is your favorite part of working on Project C?
“Everyone on Project C is so talented—it's great to collaborate with other creative people, especially when you can learn from each persons strengths. If there's something you don't know how to do, chances are somebody does. It's just a great experience to be a part of.”

Three words that describe you best:
Optimist. Perfectionist. Nerd.

Meet Sarah Miller!

Sarah is a senior studying commercial photography in the Ohio University School of Visual Communication. She is the talent behind the camera, documenting all that happens behind-the-scenes at Project C.

Hometown: Granville, Ohio

What is your favorite part of working on Project C?

“Because I'm behind the scenes, I don't really get to work with the organizations we help. I observe how everyone else interacts with each other. I guess that's my favorite part, the observing. Witnessing the changes and improvements of the area and watching fellow students devote so much of their time, money, and energy into spreading awareness is inspiring to say the least. It's so obvious that they want to be here not for themselves but for the community.

Where is your favorite place to spend an afternoon in Athens?
"By the Hocking River with friends.”

Do you have any hidden talents? 
"I have a knack for repairing things, whether it's with a hammer and nails, duct tape, paint, or even a needle and thread. I can make a fire better and faster than any guy I know (with a few exceptions) and I've been told I'm quite the masseuse. But my best hidden talent is that I can read my twin sister's mind and feel her pains when she busts something (again). She's definitely yelling at the screen now saying she can do those things better than me. Between you and me, aside from the sewing, she's right.”

The most valuable piece of advice you’ve ever received: 
“These four ideas have influenced my life in extraordinary ways:
  1.  Love. Just love. Love everyone and everything around you as you want to be loved. And when you leave, you better leave them more beautiful than when you found them. That's the only way to be truly happy, and that's the only way you're memory in this world will last longer than some facts in a history book. 
  2. 'Everyone's got to be different. You can't copy anybody and end up with anything. If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling. And without feeling, whatever you do amounts to nothing.' -Billie Holiday
  3. Take a chance, you may fail, but have faith and Just do it.
  4. 'A smile is the shortest distance between two people.' -Victor Borge”
If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be?
“A couch. It's the one piece of furniture that can do almost anything. Everyone can enjoy your comfort, steal your cushions to slide down the stairs, sleep and relax on you. You become a trampoline or pummel-horse, the wall of a fort, plastic perfection, and my favorite, thrown out in the back yard for movie night with friends cuddled together.”
