Interview with a Sponsor: Samantha


Q.
I see you're studying Political Science! What exactly is that and what do you plan on doing with that? I'm assuming it has something to do w/ politics??
A.
I have no idea! I wish someone would have told me that even though Political Science sounds like a great major, there is little you can do with it other than go to law school or graduate school. It's a dream of mine to work in East/Northeast Africa, but I don't know whether or not that will happen. I know I want to make an impact, so if I find myself in advocacy or some type of lobbying, I won't be disappointed.

Q.
You have a rather new blog. What made you decide to start blogging? Is this your first blog?
A.
This is my first blog. Blogging started off as a way to both journal my day to day experiences and keep in touch with my friends and family while I'm off at school. After a couple posts, everyone kept telling me they loved my writing and I soon realized how much I loved blogging - it's transformed in to something totally different than what I originally expected, but I love it! I can't say enough about how great the blogging community is.

Q.
If you could describe yourself in 3 words, what would they be and why?
A.
Outspoken - A blessing and a curse, I can't shut up or keep my thoughts to myself.
Empathetic - Again a blessing and a curse! I'm just super empathetic, which I think is the reasoning why I'm so passionate about some social issues.
Bookworm - I love reading! Get me a book and we will be friends forever. Unless it's a really bad book which despite popular belief, do exist.

Q.
I love your blog header - you seem to have a good sense of visual balance. Have you ever considered going into graphic design?
A.
Oh, I wish! My header is courtesy of a friend of mine. I actually sketched it out and then he made it for me. I think I will leave the graphic design to talented people like yourself.

Q.
What's one piece of advice you would tell your 18-year-old self, if you could?
A.
Chill out, everything will work itself out. Oh- AND WORK HARDER! I completely bombed my last year of high school for no reason at all other than I loved skipping class, I developed a habit that follows me even today.

Q.
A ridiculous amount of bloggers also do crafty stuff. Are you one of these? Do you have an Etsy shop you'd like to promote?
A.
I pretend to do crafty things. But let's be honest, I'm hazardous with a hot glue gun and deadly with anything sharp. I don't know how some of these women do it. Needless to say, I do not have an Etsy shop, but if I ever do, you will be the first to know! Just don't hold your breath.

Q.
Tell my readers one random thing about yourself.
A.
I played rugby in high school, my one regret is not keeping up with it and playing through college. I guess that's another thing I would tell my 18 year old self!
