Sarah has been caring for her Mum since she was ten years old. Her mother has multiple chronic medical conditions, and Sarah is the only family member that can care for her. Sarah also cares for her Grandmother, and her three siblings, all of which have special needs.

Sarah has very little time for herself in between juggling school and work. She has been to the carers foundation programs a couple of time which gives her the strength and hope to continue with her very demanding life. Young teens like Sarah never have any fun or a chance to be a normal teenager.

Despite all this Sarah gives the little free time she has as a volunteer fire fighter. Sarah also wants to contribute to help other young carers with the foundation, as she knows how important the programs are to save young people in her situation, and the significant difference it makes.
