Sarah Roza, TV personality from MAFS 2018 & Amazing Race 2012

My career has been varied from day one, I have always loved working with people, from hospitality, secretarial, property, beauty and in Media. I am passionate about charity with the view to help others and hopefully bring more people together to care and love each other. I am someone who is driven by very strong work ethic and I’m a highly principled person. I spend most of my weekends doing charity work, through my work as an ambassador for UN Women’s Council, to SANDS, Very Special Kids, Safe Steps, Big Umbrella Foundation, Keep Melbourne Warm, Bully Zero & Ronald McDonald House. I am also a Domestic Violence Advocate.

  • Ending and preventing homelessness is high on my list for helping others. Homelessness results in significant social and economic costs not just to individuals and families, but also communities and we as a nation have a responsibility – to step up and care.
  • I would also like to be a Role model for empowering young women to be the best they can be.
  • I was delighted to celebrate the passing of same-sex marriage laws. The legal definition of marriage in the Marriage Act 1961 has been changed from being a “union of a man and a woman” to a “union of two people”. Simply Fabulous.
