Sarah Sobka is an 18 year old from Sheffield, who will hopefully be starting medical school in September. In March she won the title of UK Young Scientist of the Year at the National Science & Engineering Competition. Her project looked at a drug that is currently used to treat IBS, to see whether any of its characteristics can allow it to be used on cystic fibrosis patients. She is passionate about encouraging girls into science and was a speaker at the Always #LikeAGirl summit in June. Her other interests include competitive debating (where she is ranked 12th in the UK) and running her food blog: fromayoungfoodie.wordpress.com.
