Stories from our international boarding schools

Sara Burkhard

I grew up in the U.S. where I studied in California and Arizona. For the last decade, I have been working in the software and travel industries, helping brands craft stories from the heart. This brought me to EF Academy where I now help tell our unique story through copy and other content. My greatest accomplishments have been mentoring students in creative pursuits, helping develop programs to encourage underprivileged students to graduate high school, and discussing the importance of STEM education among women and minorities.
