Sarah Lurie was an exceptional young woman at the beginning of her career. She was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 21 and sadly lost her battle with cancer just over a year later. She passed away in May 2022.

Sarah was brilliant, generous and a high-achiever her entire life, from school right through to her last days, still taking client briefs from her hospital bed. She was a founding member of Freelancing Gems and our very first intern. Sarah will live on in our memories, the words she wrote and the experiences we shared. This scholarship program has been named in Sarah’s honour, to acknowledge the contribution she made to our Freelancing Gems community and the example she set for women in business – to waste no time in pursuing your dreams.
