Sara Lafkir is the video editor and main videographer for Rooted. She was born in New York City and raised in Casablanca, Morocco. She received her master’s degree from the Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism program at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. She was chased three times by a rooster named Fred while covering a story for Rooted and is now a self-proclaimed expert in rooster body language. Pro tip: If the rooster starts to skitter sideways, he’s about to attack. Don’t run away, just divert his attention by throwing something near him, but not at him.
