Sarah Al-Ahmed’s childhood passion for science fiction and astronomy set her on a lifelong mission to share her love of space with the world. Now she is living her dream as the Digital Community Manager for The Planetary Society.
Sarah holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in astrophysics from the University of California at Berkeley. After some time as a data-taker for a supernova research team using instruments at Lick Observatory in Mt. Hamilton, California, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in science communication. Sarah spent five years as a museum guide, writer, and show producer at the historic Griffith Observatory. She was a monthly contributor to Griffith Observer magazine and a content creator for All Space Considered, the observatory’s monthly astronomy news program.
In 2020, Sarah joined The Planetary Society as Digital Community Manager. She uses her science communication skills to cultivate The Planetary Society's online communities. She hopes to inspire others to pursue their dreams and work together to build a bright future among the stars.
