Samantha, a self-described “fashionista”, was a ton of fun to meet and photograph. She joined my team to represent Veritas Preparatory Academy, where she will graduate in 2017. “I joined your team because I thought it would be fun and rewarding”, she explained, “The Sandi Shipley models promote inner beauty, kindness, and friendship, and I knew I wanted to be part of that!” Samantha is a great addition to my team, and brings a personality she says her friends would call “outgoing, enthusiastic, and bubbly”. Although having an extroverted personality might seem like it’s all I’d need on my team, I love that we have a mix of personalities. It brings more dimension, and better represents all types of smart and lovely young women on my team.
Samantha is a junior staffer at Changing Hands Bookstore, which she says offers her lots of challenges and is a rewarding experience. She also manages the girls varsity basketball team at her school, and is on the mock trial team. Post high school, she hopes to attend a state school for four years, then continue on to graduate school to pursue a degree in law. She also has her sights set on lots of travel to places like Antarctica. I had a great time meeting her, and can’t wait to share more photos of her soon!
