Woods Charter School
Chapel Hill, NC
Samantha Shaw is a senior at Woods Charter School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She attended WJMC 2016 and when trying to consolidate her experience at the end of the week she said this: new friends, new experiences, new beginning. The best parts of WJMC for Samantha were the connections she made-meeting some of her closest friends as well as some immensely inspirational and engaging speakers. At her school, she is the yearbook Editor-in-Chief, a post she came into because of the tenacity and perseverance that WJMC taught her, and she is President of a philanthropy club called Ronald McDonald House. She spends whatever spare time she can find reading, writing, and dancing.
