Sarah Herron has the power to make the media more inclusive. Growing up with one arm, she had the strong support of her family and inclusive community. But she still felt isolated. “I never saw strong, empowered women in the media that looked like me,” she told us. Today, she’s making sure that’s not the case for the next generation.
Sarah wanted to change the usual narrative around people with physical differences, so she competed on season 17 of The Bachelor. Following the overall positive response from viewers, Sarah started SheLift, an organization that empowers girls with physical differences by encouraging them to participate in outdoor adventures.
For her latest effort to share her point-of-view, Sarah teamed up Summersalt to create one of our 2019 Power Suits. Swimwear has long been the uniform for moments of childlike joy. Think: splashing in the ocean or running through a sprinkler. As part of the Power Suit capsule collection, Sarah’s swimsuit will help us reclaim that joy.
