Hey! My name is Sam, or Samantha-Irene to my mother — your pick! I’m attending Hamline University where I’m double majoring in journalism and modern language with a focus on Spanish,German, and Arabic. However I would prefer to study being a couch potato, and a professional McDonald’s burger eater.
I am also part of an NROTC (Naval Reserves Officer Training Corps) track through a program at the University of Minnesota, and am an official candidate for the Naval Academy! I’m not so psyched about the 5 am workouts, and giving up my McDonald’s diet, but I know the harder I work the closer I am to achieving my future goals as a search and rescue diver/ language specialist in the Navy and starting a new adventure!
