My name is Sara Levine and I am currently getting my Masters in Social Work
at North Carolina A&T and UNC Greensboro. I am originally from Queens, NY
but moved to North Carolina to attend Elon University. I graduated with a degree
in Human Service Studies and Public Health. This past year I was a School Social
Work Intern at a Middle School in Wake County and have been co-conducting
research on the impact mentorship roles have on the upward mobility of historically
oppressed youth. Outside of school you can find me playing tennis, riding my bike,
and spending all of my time outdoors.
