Web News Editor Now in her second year of working as a news editor at The Ubyssey, Sam drinks an (absolutely unhealthy) amount of coffee in order to fuel her obsession with writing. She takes a special interest in reporting on matters of sexual assault and other crimes, public opinion, and university governance, most recently covering a 10-day attempted murder trial in October. She loves to harass the photo editor for absolutely no reason (pictured) and occasionally finds the time to go to classes for her political science and creative writing degree.
