Samantha (Sam) Shaw is a rising Junior studying English Comparative Literature and Spanish to become a high school English, or perhaps ESL, teacher. Sam loves language because she fervently believes that words have the power to change us. She has been published in the Salemite newspaper, Incunabula literary magazine, and in various online publications such as Havok and Lemon Star Magazine. She is also the Head Photographer for her college newspaper. In the time she isn’t writing, reading, or behind a camera, she can be found watching Disney movies, eating ice cream no matter the weather, and doing yoga on the beautiful beaches of her hometown of Duck, NC.
