presenting sara & company:
Sara Li is an assortment of professions: humanitarian, writer, and avid Grey Anatomy binge-watcher (not a job, but she acts like it is). Her curiosity and idealism makes her a maverick in the sea of too cool for school millennials. Coined as a “modern day Supergirl”, Sara has amassed a serious online following since she first launched her blog at the age of 16. Her enthusiasm for life itself has made her a digital darling and a voice for the humble Midwest; it’s impossible not to feel inspired and comforted when in the company of her whimsical spirit or playful sense of humor. Since adolescence, Sara has been a champion for the romantics, the creatives, and the game-changers.
Currently, Sara is still the CEO of Project Consent and is working hard to launch her podcast and publish her first collection of personal essays.
Kansas City Wellness Month is a city-wide program created by Sara Li during her time as Kansas City's 30 Under 30 to promote the three core pillars of health: mental, physical, and emotion. The program is a 30 day calendar of accessible, free to cheap activities meant to boost one's overall sense of wellbeing. By collaborating with local businesses and influencers in the greater Kansas City area, Kansas City Wellness Month celebrates #KCPRIDE by demonstrating just how strong the sense of community is.
In the words of Sara herself: "Wellness is something that I've always struggled with, whether it be mental stress from work and school or emotional stress from life itself. This year, I really wanted to change my life around and start taking baby steps for my health. The neat thing about Kansas City Wellness Month is that anyone can join in, no matter what stage of life they're in. We will meet you where you're at and we will root for you all the same. I hope that you'll participate in this year's Wellness Month because there's no time like today to start fresh."
Project Consent is a non-profit organization that Sara started at the age of seventeen to raise awareness about sexual assault across the globe. Since 2014, Project Consent has played a major role in the fight against sexual violence. Please visit Project Consent's website for more information about their work.
Project Consent began in 2014 as an idea formed in the bedroom of one teenage girl that wanted to make a difference. This small but vital idea was an important stepping stone in creating the organization it is now. Through the help of many people, Project Consent has grown into something truly monumental: a community that believes in survivors, advocates, and like-minded individuals driven to make a difference. In just four years alone, Project Consent has flourished into a global platform that people are watching, learning, and sharing from.
Currently, Sara acts CEO of Project Consent and works remotely with her global staff of 50+ to ensure the best quality work in the fight against sexual violence. Sara's work include traveling across the world to conference with change-makers and creating content that'll start conversation and change the culture. If you would like to speak to Sara about her work with Project Consent, please reach her through her e-mail or contact form.
Sara started her writing career at the age of 16 when she launched her now retired lifestyle / comedy blog: OMFG Sara. But if you ask her, she'll say that she's always been a writer at heart. She grew up as an avid reader and retained the habit through her adolescence to her early adulthood years. Once she enrolled in college, she started writing professionally. From lifestyle evergreen pieces to trending pop-culture takes, Sara's writing has been shared with thousands of readers across the globe. She is most known for her contribution to MTV in 2016-2017 as an editorial writer. She still freelances on occasion for publications seeking an honest, clear voice.
Currently, Sara is working on her first collection of personal essays, titled 1996. In this collection, she talks about growing up in the Midwest as an American-Asian teen with a foot out of each culture, unable to find the balance as a second generation immigrant. She also talks about taking social cues from cult classics such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Gilmore Girls. Her creative approach to storytelling has made for a mesmerizing read as she transitions from first-loves to mental health to making a name for yourself before being able to legally drink. She hopes that 1996 will inspire readers to find comfort in their journey and remember to laugh along the way.
