We are excited to share the incredibly adorable and ever-so-sweet Sarah Abbott with you today as our #FEMMEFEATUREFRIDAY! Sarah is a budding young artist and award-winning actress who currently resides in Whitby, Canada. A born performer and natural entertainer, it was evident that Sarah had a passion for singing, dancing and acting from the time she could walk and talk. This beautiful girl is beyond inspiring and we truly admire the confidence and conviction she has in the path she has chosen to pursue. Look out world… we know that we will only continue to see great things from this talented girl for many years to come!
Despite her young age, Sarah has already accumulated quite the extensive resume! She has made many appearances on several film and television productions including Slasher (Netflix), Heroes Reborn (NBC), Houdini & Doyle (Fox/Global) and The Rick Mercer Project (CBC). Sarah can currently be seen on Netflix, in the 2nd episode of Black Mirror (Arkangel) as young Sara directed by the legendary Academy Award winning actress, director and producer Jodie Foster and in the movie Lavender staring Abbie Cornish and Dermot Mulroney. Be sure to look out for Sarah in the new NBC series The InBetween this summer, and in the TV movie Mommy’s Little Princess airing on Lifetime in the US and later in the year in Canada!
Sarah is the ultimate personification of girl power! This determined young woman is proof that when we empower girls from a young age to be fearless in the pursuit of who they are, we ultimately make the world a better place. We love how Sarah recognizes her unlimited potential and encourages other girls to cultivate their own voices and identify that they can make a difference, too. This little girl is simply a superstar! Thank you Sarah for reminding us that it is never too early to become the person we are meant to be.

What do you love most about being a performer? How did you know this was something you wanted to start pursuing professionally?
I love to perform because I get to express all different kinds of emotions. Ever since I was very young, I loved to make up plays and dances for my family. I watched the kids on the Disney Channel and thought I could do that too. When my parents saw an ad for an open audition call for actors, I told them I wanted to try out. I was signed that very day.
You are so young and have already accomplished so much! Tell us about your future goals and aspirations. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I see myself living in Los Angeles working as a lead actor on a TV series or feature films.
What does girl power mean to you?
Girl power to me is being fearless, confident and going after your dreams.
We love that you are so passionate about advocating for animals rights! Why is it important for girls to use their voices to bring awareness to issues that are close to their hearts?
Everyone should use their voices to express what they believe in. With today’s social media, girls can reach audiences all around the world and talk about what is important to them. Girls can make a difference.
What’s your definition of a YGTGirl?
A YGTGirl is a girl who encourages, supports and builds up others. Girls need to be there for each other.
