Sarah Memon ’19 comes from Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Fort Worth Country Day as a member of the Cum Laude Society.

As a First-Year Fellow, Sarah was mentored by Edward Rynne ’77 and interned with the Smithsonian Institution Office of Policy and Analysis whose mission is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Smithsonian Institution by providing timely and accurate information for decision-making.

For Sarah, the most rewarding part of her fellowship experience was completing a literature review for the first time and being given the task of authoring a report on her own.

“I feel a great sense of pride that a paper I solely wrote will be sent to a client,” says Sarah. She appreciated that the opportunity allowed her to experience the difference in writing a paper for a class and writing a paper for a client. “The knowledge I gained specifically from my findings will be very helpful to me in future endeavors.”

Back on campus, Sarah is working towards a major in Economics and minor in Public Policy and International Studies. She is a senior analyst for Smart Woman Securities and a member of Women in Business. Sarah is also a Mathematics Learning Fellow at Dartmouth.
