Sara has interned in war crimes tribunals, conducted fieldwork in post-conflict areas, and served as project leader for the Voices of Kashmir, a grassroots program conducting digital storytelling workshops for young Kashmiris.

Her work as a freelance writer has appeared in Le Monde, The Heptagon Post, and Tehelka.
