Recognizable me: Hi everyone! My name is Samantha (Sammy) Greenwald. I am 21 years old and will be a senior in Leeds this fall where I am majoring in Finance and minoring in Spanish and Leadership. I am actually a born and raised “Boulderite” and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
If you can’t tell, this picture was taken in Rome, outside of the Coliseum. I spent the last 6 months studying abroad in Alicante, Spain and was in Rome for my birthday! Not many people have heard of where I went but it is a beautiful city, right on the beach, and located 6 hours south of Barcelona. I had the most amazing time and adventures there and it definitely went by way too fast. On my Instagram, I have tons of photos if anyone is curious about my time away!
Where I’m at: I just arrived home last week from Europe and have spent the past few days settling in. I am living in Boulder this summer at my parents house. I found a subletter who could stay January-August and figured I may as well enjoy a fully stocked fridge and someone doing my laundry while I still can.
I just started work this week and I am interning part-time at two different companies. I am working with the Director of Finance at Boulder Organic Foods, and at Ozuke. These are both natural food companies in the Boulder area and they are doing some great things for our world!
Along with this class, I am taking American History through Baseball, if anyone is a baseball fanatic please let me know, as I have absolutely no knowledge in that area. So, after a six month “vacation” in Europe I am jumping back into things full swing.
What I want: I was always taught that my voice should rarely be in my writing. I am curious to learn how to let my voice shine through while still maintaining a professional tone. Writing has always been a struggle for me and I’m hoping that this class will give me the tools I need to make it easier.
I have no experience with WordPress and would love to learn such a necessary skill. I consider myself quite technologically challenged and so this class presents the perfect opportunity to improve. Blogging is not something I’ve ever done before so I’m excited to give it a shot as well.
Although I keep my LinkedIn Profile quite up to date, I’d love to get more tips on how to make it really stand out. I know many recent graduates who actually got jobs through LinkedIn and hopefully I’ll be able to get mine to that level.
Where to find me: When I’m not at work or studying this summer, you can most likely find me hiking, at the creek, or in my kitchen. I missed my dog more than anything this past semester and my favorite thing to do with her is to take her hiking up Sanitas Mountain Trail. Her name is Stella, she is a Goldendoodle and just turned two this week!
My family is from Australia and most of my favorite childhood memories are from Bondi Beach in Sydney. This stemmed my obsession with water and since there is obviously no ocean here, I find the creek a (far behind) second. I love tubing, doing the rope swing or just hanging with friends and dipping our feet in the water.
I absolutely love cooking, I don’t think there is anything more satisfying than cooking and eating a delicious meal. I love watching Tasty videos and then trying to recreate them. Sometimes they end in disaster but I have had a few successful tries as well. This summer my parents are part of a Community Food Share program and so we get fresh produce from a farm every week. It’s so much fun trying to figure out what to do with a full bag of tomatillos or fava beans.
