About Me

 Sara aka BloodBank 

Age: 23
Location: CA

I decided to get people involved in my journey so everyone could share this experience with me. I want people to take life by the horns. To set a goal and go for it. You never know what lies around the corner, so live the life you have, while you have it! 

I am no stranger to setbacks. When I was 15, I got Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).  When I was 19, I got Melanoma (Skin Caner). When I was 21, I decided to live my life – my way. I want to explore the world. I want to see it first hand. I want to live. We are not guaranteed anything in this life. Why do we let opportunities pass us by? We only have one shot. Let’s make the most out of it.

I know what it’s like living in pain every single day. I know what it’s like being told you can never live your life in the same manner you would have before. I know what it’s like knowing you don’t have very much time. What THEY didn’t know, was that I wasn’t going to let any of this hold me back. It only created a stronger desire to get out and live my life my way.

I’ve decided that while I still have time here on this planet I’m going to follow my dreams. I’m going to LIVE my life. I want to inspire each of you to do what makes you happy. We are raised in a society that steers us away from happiness and into materialism. We chose jobs because of money. We have become so obsessed about our status that we have forgotten what truly matters. I encourage you to question. To change. To inspire.
I have moved away from the conventional pull and tug of our culture.

 I’m embarking on the journey of MY life. My way.

Join me.
