Samantha Chang, Staff Writer

Samantha Chang is a freshman and this is her first year on staff. She has always loved writing and reading the newspaper when she was a little kid. She is from Lima, Peru, but of Chinese descent from her father. She lived in Lima until she was six. Since she knows two languages, learning a third one is hard for Chang, deeming German as her least favorite subject. All the women in her family inspire Chang and make her feel confident because they've been through so much. With so many sacrifices, she feels like she can't let them down. Her main inspiration is her "Tia Carolina" because she is a business woman and super talented at her work. Her favorite thing of all is tennis and she can't wait for the spring season to try out for tennis.
