For her bachelor’s degree, she majored in women’s and gender studies and a minor in peace and conflict studies at West Chester University.

A quote she tries to live by is from the great Maya Angelou: “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”. In her spare time, Sam enjoys reading, writing, dancing her heart out, spending time in nature, and hanging out with family and friends.
