Samantha joined the CollegeBound Foundation in 2016, as a Program Associate. She is responsible for providing project support to CollegeBound’s Last Dollar Grants, scholarship, and retention programs. Prior to working in the nonprofit arena, Samantha worked in corporate communications and public affairs. During that time, she felt her work had no real impact in her community. Samantha knew she’s always been passionate about education, especially with her experience through AmeriCorps. This passion has led her to CollegeBound, where she’s immersed herself in an incredibly rewarding role, serving Baltimore City high school students.
Samantha migrated to Baltimore from the Philippines in 2002, and is a proud product of the Baltimore City Public School system, graduating from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. In 2013, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from Towson University.
