Sarah’s Story

  • Laura Parson


In this chapter, I describe Sarah’s story, beginning with her childhood in an AUB polygamous family living in Northern Utah. Prioritizing Sarah’s voice, I describe her life inside and outside of polygamy, highlighting the academic and non-academic experiences that inform understanding of her readiness for higher education. Sarah’s descriptions of her formal education experiences and non-academic experiences contributed to her readiness for higher education settings; yet, because she did not perceive a need for higher education, the impact of those factors on her readiness for higher education was limited.
