'Degrassi: The Next Generation' Star Sarah Barrable-Tishauer is a DJ Now
Drake isn't the only breakout musician from "Degrassi."
Sarah Barrable-Tishauer, better known as Liberty Van Zandt from the original Degrassi: The Next Generation cast, is now a DJ -- proving that Drake isn't the only one capable of using the Canadian television series as a musical launchpad.
OK, she's not quite Drake. But who is?
Barrable-Tishauer played Liberty from 2001 to 2009, which is the same timeframe Drake was on the show as Jimmy Brooks.
Now, she is a DJ on the side. She's a full-time account manager at a marketing agency, according to Buzzfeed. In June, she posted a photo of herself as the valedictorian at her Concordia University graduation (in 2012) and noted in the caption, "Most people assume that being on Degrassi is my proudest accomplishment, but on this day - 5 years ago, I stood up in front of 2,000 of my peers, professors, mentors, friends and family as Valedictorian of the @ConcordiaUniversity Graduating Class 2012."
It should be noted that her Instagram username is "djmetime," and she frequently posts photos of her on the job doing what she called "Bass Face."
DJ Me Time is a deliberate music alias, as she told Refinery29 in August: "The brand I’m trying to cultivate around Me Time has a lot to do with something that women can bring to this space. A perspective beyond testosterone-fueled parties that are often not safe-spaces women and LGBTQ. I really want to expand to talk about self-care, self-love. A lot about nurturing yourself and how that makes you better in your journey...Talking about self-care in the states' music festivals or concerts or whatever where people can often lose themselves. Not respect themselves, their body, the people around them. That's kind of where Me Time came from.'
"So, wherever I play, we’ll put up signs to call out that discrimination of any form is not tolerated. Too long have certain groups had to feel uncomfortable because the space was not ‘made for them’ or didn’t ‘tolerate them’. We’re turning the tables. These are spaces that anyone should be able to come and be completely themselves and not feel like they have to be someone else, which I think happens a lot in clubs and festival environments where people feel like they have to put on different face or something."
