Samantha recently received (May 2021) a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing with a focus in Fiction Writing, from Columbia College Chicago. Samantha worked as the Events and Programming Intern, where she populated a freshly published website with efficient and accessible information. Writing the copy is an experience she thoroughly enjoys, and finds word-smithing to be an exciting process. Samantha loves to generate and share her own stories, but she also loves reading or hearing others' stories, which she maintains to be endlessly inspiring. She finds that while being a writer can be a very independent pursuit, it can also be very collaborative, which is easily one of her favorite aspects.

Interests

For as long as she can remember, Samantha has always been writing. When she was in high school, she took an interest in journalism, mainly writing reviews for concerts or albums. But when the time came to commit to a disciplined study, she chose creative writing as she longed to write more freely.
At Columbia College Chicago, Samantha held an internship position for events and programming which had piqued her interest in developing the student experience through her ability to communicate information effectively within different demographics. During her time at Columbia College, Samantha wrote a comic book script and collaborated with an illustrator to create the visual comic. Having her story come to life with the help of an incredibly talented artist and peer, inspires her to keep pushing herself out of her comfort zone.
Samantha is currently working at evolving her digital art skills, as drawing has always been an interest of hers.
