My name is Sarah Cremer and I’m a junior at Judge Memorial. I’ve always loved writing. There’s so many different corners and walls that make up writing, but what I love most about it is its ability to grab all kinds of people. The best kind of writing is writing that so many different types of people can connect to. Its amazing when youread something that is so simple but it hits you in some incredible way that it won’t hit someone else. That’s why I wanted to become a journalist. I wanted to find ways to connect different people.
I have always really love music. I started learning how to play different instruments, like piano, flute, and ukelele, when I was about eight years old. I don’t ever remember it being stressful learning this whole other language of music. I felt like I could escape through it. I look at writing the same way. I get to tell a story that could be about anything in the world, and I’m able to be mindless while doing it. It isn’t stressful. I think that music helps me with writing. I’m using a language to connect on different levels.
I always think about all the places I’d like to travel to some day and if I’ll be able to. I wonder if I’ll be able to in the sense of what will happen to me in the future, but also in the sense of what’s going to happen to the world in the future. I mean, take away whether or not you believe in climate change and instead just look at Earth. We all know how to feel, and we all know how to care for things. We also know how to ignore those feelings and how to be careless. The Earth is huge! It’s where we live! And still, it’s so easy for some people to put the state of Earth at the back of their mind. I just wonder how. If I could interview anyone it would simply be someone with the exact opposite views of me. Not someone extreme, just a person with a different thought process.
