With each show Saran’s goal is for her viewers to walk away with more information than they had prior to watching the show; and perhaps an understanding of a perspective unlike their own.
In 2012, when Saran came up with the idea for ‘WHAT WOULD she DO?” the intent of the show was to inspire people to love themselves past the pain of failed relationships. While the intention to inspire and encourage remains, Saran would also like to lead her audience down a path of enlightenment. Through this show Saran presents her audience with options through the sharing of different life experiences and information to help bring people to a place of mutual respect and understanding.
