About me: Hi everyone, I'm Samantha-Lynn! I am extremely passionate about marine science and biology, but you can't forget about my artistic side too! Aside from my experience in marine science, I'm also a designer/illustrator, and I've worked for marine science organizations around the area, the aquarium, and some other fields outside marine science like the UW astronomy department, and even Cotopaxi! Ultimately I hope to keep the science and communications/design sides of me alive and well into my academic and professional career, and I'd love to help you all out on your interdisciplinary studies as well! Exploring all your options in college to find out what truly makes you tick is something I'll ALWAYS advocate for, and you all have an awesome opportunity to do so with the Interdisciplinary Honors Program.
