Samantha says, “Ever since the first day of kindergarten, I have wanted to be an elementary school teacher!” Now she’s on her way and, after graduation, plans to continue on for a Master’s in Education at Marymount. She’s a resident assistant and also a member of the women’s lacrosse team. In addition, she played a season on the women’s basketball team. Samantha explains, “Being a part of different organizations and sports teams has allowed me to meet and make strong connections with many different people on campus.” She adds, “I love the small size of this campus, where I can get to know everyone around me!” Samantha also enjoys all the activities that are available in the Washington, DC, region. Her favorite DC event: The Cherry Blossom Festival.
