Sarah’s response to her nickname ‘Yeti’
Sarah said, “Well, when the nickname originated I had no idea that this video blog was gonna go on for so long!””I was much more private and almost afraid of putting myself out there on the Internet. Since then, though, as I’ve been working in museums — I’m in museum videos, I have a very public life here at [IMA], I speak publicly a lot, so people who have wanted to find out who I am have been able to for a while now. So I think I’m just — I’m ready now to acknowledge now that I’m no longer really ‘The Yeti,’ but I’m a full person.”
The couple owns a West Highland Terrier named Fireball Wilson Roberts, nicknamed Willy.
