“Assume best intentions.”–Sarah Herron
I first met Sarah Herron during a speaker event at the National Ability Center in Park City, UT. We instantly clicked. Sarah is the founder of SheLift, an organization dedicated to empowering women with physical differences through outdoor recreation and mentorship. For her first official SheLift event, Sarah took seven young women skiing in Colorado which had a profound impact on each person, including herself.
A fun fact about Sarah: she has been on three seasons of The Bachelor! After her first appearance on Season 17 in 2013, Sarah was flooded by hundreds of messages from people around the globe who live with physical differences. Since then, Sarah has used her platform to empower young women and people everywhere.
In this episode, Sarah and I talk about how to lift up other women, how to thrive on reality TV, how to take what she learned on reality TV to her success on Kilimanjaro, the inspiration and origins of her organization, best practices for talking about people with differing abilities, how to balance femininity and being outdoors, how to find power through vulnerability, what it’s like to feel like you don’t belong, and why we should all trust our intuition without hesitation.
