Sammie is a sophomore having an existential crisis about what to study. A child of Southern California, she spent most of her summer in the ocean or lifeguarding at the local pool. Growing up, she’d hike, swim, kayak, and camp with her parents and older brothers. In high school, she played volleyball and ran track and she continues to play club volleyball here at USC.
If you’re from the Pacific Northwest and miss the weather, don’t you worry. Nearly every backpacking trip she’s gone on, it’s rained at least once. Catalina in July??? Ya, it rained. She loves s’mores, pb&j’s and maple brown sugar oatmeal so know what to expect on any and all of her trips. It’s a guaranteed good time.
