Samantha was a first-year student majoring in Engineering Physics. During high school, she was involved in Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and GirlUp. She also founded an organization called Conquer with Cryo that raises money for storage fees for adolescents who must freeze their eggs and sperm due to cancer treatments. At UNH, she was a part of the Ski and Snowboard Club, Baking Club, and the Idea and Innovation Society. She wanted to become a part of the Changemaker Collaborative to be in a community that harbored the same passion for sustainability and change that she did. She was looking forward to collaborating with students to make a change.
