Click image to enlarge

Alumna Sarah Goldman (Bachelor of Social Work, '14) is featured as an "Everyday Hero" in a new television segment produced by Channel 13 in Orlando.

While at UCF, Goldman, who has cerebral palsy, emerged as an advocate for students with disabilities. She worked to bring awareness on campus to the obstacles faced by these students, such as gaining personal-care attendants and getting in and out of classrooms. Her efforts included launching a Facebook movement named "S.A.R.A.H." for Student Advocates Reaching for Awareness and Hope.

Also while at UCF, Goldman made a presentation that led to an appointment as youth representative for the governor's Commission on Jobs for Floridians with Disabilities, reported Channel 13's Ed Heiland.

Goldman plans to pursue a master's degree in clinical social work and continue advocating for individuals with disabilities in Tallahassee.
