Sarah Yvonne Copland

Mother, expat, feminist and wanna-be writer are some of the ways I would describe myself. I have worked for the United Nations for the last five years, most recently in Beirut where I worked on advancing gender equality and women’s rights in the Arab region. On the 4th of August 2020, my two year old son Isaac was killed in the Beirut explosion, the biggest non-nuclear explosion in history. I was pregnant at the time and have since returned to Australia with my husband, where I gave birth to my second son Ethan.

I write about motherhood, grief, trauma, women’s rights and anything else that comes to mind.
