Born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Sam wanted adventure in the great wide somewhere as much as her favorite Disney heroine, Belle. Also like Belle, she turned to books for adventure. Sam’s love of reading turned into a love of writing, which led her to magazine journalism in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Currently a sophomore, Sam hopes her future degree from Newhouse will help her achieve her goal of becoming a writer for Cosmopolitan or a travel magazine. She’s working towards that goal by writing for some SU magazines, including University Girl. Sam’s work as a content publisher is helping her fine-tune her writing skills, as well as learn more about graphic design and social media.
