January’s Passionate Feature is the beautiful Sara Dorvilier. Born in Miami, Florida in 1991 Sara has always strived as a studious student. Having a passion for fashion, health and wellness, she will leave an impact on this world as we know it! Who do we have to thank for this courageous, goal oriented young woman? Rev. Chimene, who has mentored Sarah since the age of 17. Everything she does is for God. From the people she spends her idle time with, to the non-profit she has that is geared to helping young women walk in their purpose!!!
As a Program Coordinator, Sara and her 20 staff members help students in their community obtain free resources to better their lives and assist in registering for school at Miami Dade College. As you can see, empathy is everything to Sara!
Due to curiosity, we were anxious to ask this vibrant young woman, what would she tell her younger self and her answer revealed just how passionate she is! Sara stated, “I would tell my younger me to STOP worrying about the way others may view you and to just GO FOR IT; The sky is the limit, DO NOT let fear Stop you”. We’re actually quite surprised that she thought her younger self would need that word of wisdom. Sara’s future is Shining very BRIGHT!
As for the next generation that will soon graduate, here’s Sara’s advice for you: “Go to school. Education is a major key to success! Have fun and take opportunities!”
Due to faith and hard work Sara flourished in school and was blessed to have numerous opportunities presented to her. For instance, during undergrad she traveled to Paris for 3 months, studied French at La Sorbonne and was truly thankful to God for granting such an experience! You may be wondering, what does Sara do during her free time. The answer to that is Ministry. She understands the importance of giving back and knows every day she’s one step closer to achieving a short or long term goal.
