Let Me Tell You About Me…


I am Sam-not Sam I Am, please don’t start quoting Green Eggs and Ham to me. I’m a senior at the University of Mary Washington. I’m an English-Creative Writing major and I work as a tutor at UMW’s writing center. My time right now is divided between writing, reading, and researching internships. I’m currently excited and completely terrified of the future.

I was born and raised in Virginia and will most likely live out the rest of my life in the same zip code where my family lives. When not in school I live with my mom and my younger brother. My mom comes from a family that seems to breed insurance agents (my mom, grandpa, and uncles) and stay at home moms (my grandma and aunts). I don’t plan to fall into this mold.

On New Years I resolved to read 75 books; this is the third year I’ve tried. This might explain why I haven’t watched any of the original Star Wars movies or the latest Twilight installment. I’m always a little behind, but hopefully this year I’ll make it. I hope to turn my reading habit into a career by going into book publishing and editing.

I recently worked as a copy and assistant fiction editor for the Rappahannock Review.
