Sarah Newton in her own words is something of a maverick. A flamboyant and rebellious character, Sarah has spent a career championing the cause of young people and following her own path from working at Disney World in Florida to being a police officer to working with parents and young people to now flying the flag for creativity and self-expression.

If you are a parent or someone who works with young people there is much to learn from Sarah's story.

A passion for working with and writing about young people led her to become one of the first parenting coaches in the UK and publish a book on parenting - Help my teenager is an Alien. She went on to feature in a mainstream parenting TV series and working with Fortune 500 companies as an advisor on youth and change.

But it hasn't been all plain sailing, a tragic event when a teenager she was working with, in the police force took his own life had a profound effect on her and shaped her subsequent career. She went on to leave her job, home, and husband all at the same time.

The apparent dream of a TV series proved to be a huge challenge to her values and beliefs and led to a further pivot in her career as a writer and influencer around 'Teenology".Sarah is now pursuing a career as a social commentator, a decoder of human behaviour and cataylst for change

Her story shows us the power of conviction and navigating adversity by following your own path.
