As I reflect on my time at UofSC, I realize that I am not the same person. While at UofSC, my diverse set of experiences and opportunities have altered and shaped who I am today. In some ways, I feel that I will be indebted to UofSC forever because it went far beyond providing an education. On top of receiving outstanding academics that have ignited my professional career, I owe it to UofSC for allowing me to find my best friends, expand my thoughts, serve my community and experience a lifetime of adventures. I have experienced these moments in small flashes and realize that these occasions have combined to make a large impact on my life. 

Future plans: After graduation, Samantha will join IBM in Atlanta as a consultant.
