Sam Shaw is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying English Comparative Literature and Hispanic Studies. When she graduates, she plans to continue her education at graduate school before going to teach High School English, Journalism, or English as a Second Language. She is thrilled to be returning to WJMC for the fourth year on staff. WJMC helped her discover her passion: teaching young people that words have the power to change us. When she’s not reading, writing, or walking on the beach in her hometown of Duck, NC, she is working in the self-publishing business as a Social Media Manager and Book Launch Director for the author Katie Cross.
