Synchronicity: Eye on the Surprise.

BY SARAH WALLIN
@ VOL 20 ON JAN 06, 2017

Sarah Wallin has lived in Sioux Falls for most of her life and is grateful to call the Heart of America home. Sarah received a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from USD and is putting it to good use by working for her friend, Jason, who owns a small cleaning business. When she’s not working, Sarah enjoys being in nature, walking on nature trails, reading poetry, attending Pecha Kucha Night, keeping up with all things featuring Justin Timberlake, and she especially loves keeping her eyes on the surprise of synchronicity. Sharing stories that involve synchronicity is one of her biggest passions. She aims to inspire others to make a shift in their perception of things so that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
