Samantha is a recent graduate of Brandeis University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in English. She brings three and a half years of experience as the Online Editor of her college newspaper where she grew her section from just her to two co-editors and four staff members. Samantha also served as a Marketing Assistant at a local law firm.
WHY SAMANTHA BELONGS IN THE ROOM
She knows social media platforms.
Samantha has been on most social media platforms for 5+ years, growing an account on Instagram to 32 thousand followers, as well as a TikTok platform to 10.6 thousand followers (and a Pinterest page with 4.5 thousand followers). While she no longer has the time to actively run the accounts, she stays updated with the latest trends and new platforms (shoutout to Threads).
She’s passionate about sharing stories.
During her first year at Brandeis, Samantha wrote for the news section of her newspaper. She wrote about the denial of student visas and had tough conversations with faculty to get answers on what the university was doing to help those students. Samantha also attended the Boston Climate Strike and wrote about support for it at Brandeis and worldwide.
She’s passionate about learning.
From gaining more knowledge about social media and marketing to learning new languages, Samantha is constantly interested in learning more. Currently, she’s venturing into learning Turkish and Japanese as well as taking a course on Google Ads. Over the past few years, she’s also learned to cook more than just scrambled eggs, taking on everything from soup dumplings to Greek-style lamb chops.
GOOD TO KNOW
The Great British Bake-Off and Gilmore Girls.
Both, although she has a miniature collie, Miana, that she adores.
She wrote, produced and published an EP in high school, getting over one thousand plays from across the world, including cities in India, Australia, as well as the UK.
