The Shield Online

Samantha Powers

Sophomore Samantha Powers is a first-year staffer on The Shield. This is her first attempt at journalism, but she has always loved writing. Besides writing, she enjoys singing, dancing, and acting. She received a Best of SNO award for her first story ever, which addressed updates to the AISD dress code. Her interest in politics has transferred into her writing, which mostly includes news about big events in Austin. She hopes to study social sciences in the future and pursue a career in law. She’d like to thank Mr. Winter for teaching her everything she knows about journalism and getting her started in such an invigorating and welcoming community.
