Sarah Galo

Sarah Galo graduated from Ramapo College in May 2013 with a degree in Literature with a Concentration in Creative Writing, and a minor in Human Rights and Genocide Studies. During her time at Ramapo, she was an active member, serving on the student executive boards of the College Honors Program and Sigma Tau Delta. She presented at a total of five conferences at the regional and national level for both groups. She also worked as a student aide to Professor James Hoch and assisted in organizing the Readings at Ramapo Visiting Writers Series of 2012-2013. In addition, she worked as a Pathways Intern for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement during her Senior year.

Sarah is still trying to figure out how life works outside of academia, and she hopes to attend graduate school for Social Work or Non-Profit Management. She is also an active member of Sigma Tau Delta, Alumni Epsilon, and after presenting at the 2014 International Convention, she was awarded the Isabel Sparks Presidents Award for Best Alumni Epsilon Creative Paper for her collection of poetry entitled “Lacuna,” which was excerpted from her Creative Writing Capstone manuscript. While she’s seeking full time employment, she writes for various online publications. Her writing has been featured in PolicyMic, Salon, The Line Campaign, Medium, and Relevant.

Sarah worked as the Open/Audience Intern for Guardian US for six months. There, she worked not only on social media management and community engagement, but an interview series called Women on Women Writing Online. She has accepted a new position at BuzzFeed as the Books Intern.
