Sara Richards

Sara is in her fourth and final year of the Bachelor of Design program with a major in Industrial Design and a minor in Sociology. Last year Sara was involved with the Student Design Association as Copywriter and will be continuing this year as a Member at Large. Through her work with the SDA, she has been involved in the Vignettes Exhibition during Edmonton Design week as well as Built which is a student run pop-up shop in Kingsway Mall. 


In her free time, you can find her stuck in the industrial design studio working on product prototypes, spending time with friends, working on her 3D modeling skills and trying not to cut herself with her xacto knife. When she isn’t stuck in the studio, you can find Sara at home fussing over her plants, painting and doing film photography. 


Sara has been passionate about female empowerment since she was a young girl and women's empowerment runs in her blood. Growing up, Sara’s mother always told her that she could do anything a man could, but in lipstick and better shoes. Needless to say, Sara is excited to be working with such a fantastic group of women on an issue that she is so passionate about!
