Sarah Melody

St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School

Graduated 2007

Dedicated to improving human rights locally and abroad through her work as the manager of special projects at We Day

Music has always been a passion of Sarah’s. After writing and releasing her debut album in 2007, she went on to receive two music degrees; a music business diploma from the Harris Institute in Toronto and a bachelor of arts degree in commercial music from the University of the West of Scotland.

Sarah is also interested in human rights issues and has represented Canada at the World Youth Summit in Geneva, Switzerland and New York City at United Nations headquarters. After the tsunami in Southeast Asia at the end of 2004 Sarah recorded and released the song Letter of Hope. The proceeds from sales of the single went to tsunami relief efforts.

As the Manager of Special Projects at We Day (an international youth empowerment tour organized by Free The Children), Sarah is dedicated to improving human rights locally and abroad. Last year, she managed an 11-week tour across North America that showcased students from Free The Children’s school from Maasai Mara, Kenya and artists from the Me to We artisan program.
