Slate.org Ambassador Program

Within the next few months, we are hoping to create a group of 'super users' or ambassadors who will provide feedback on new features and developments. We need some help coming up with a fun and catchy name. Interested in throwing a name into the hat? Fill out this form and the winning name gets a Slate t-shirt and tote bag! ðŸ†

GETTING TO KNOW SLATE.ORG'S STAFF  

Sarah Kochin
Program Manager of Slate.org


If you could be on a reality TV show, which one would you choose and why?

I would like to be on the Great British Bake Off. I’m not actually a great baker, but I’m confident everyone would be very sweet and try to help me struggle through a croissant or something. Plus the set and lighting makes everything look quite charming.


What is a skill you’d like to learn?

I’d love to learn how to become a successful gardener. While quarantined I had some luck with a few habanero bushes grown from seeds. I’d love to be able to grow a full garden with fresh herbs and produce.

What song is currently stuck in your head?

Pusha T - Neck & Wrist
