5 Things About Me: Sarah Rapp
- I am an experienced mascot for Chick-fil-a; so if you’ve seen the cow going crazy in north Raleigh or north Houston, it was probably me :)
- I want to do a lot of things in life. Some days I want to be a firefighter. Some days I want to start my own business. As of July 29, I have my bartending license!
- I am an extreme extrovert. If I’m not talking to someone, I’m wishing I was.
- I love working with kids, and getting those light bulb moments when they master a drill for the first time, finish a tough workout, or run a PR for the first time.
- I’m a Hokie at heart. Hard working Hokie!!!
North Carolina connection?
I grew up here! Moved to Raleigh in the 3rd grade, ran at Durant Middle and Cardinal Gibbons, then wanted to get out! Left for 5 years; Virginia Tech, then Houston. But life brought me back and I couldn’t be more amazed with what Raleigh has become!
