Samantha is excited to be joining the TYC as the Arts Community Development and Culture lead. She is currently a student at the University of Toronto studying Health Studies and History. Samantha is a life-long Toronto resident, and she first engaged with the city's arts and culture scene through the Fringe Festival when she was seven. Since then, Samantha has been fortunate to experience the variety of cultural events the city of Toronto offers each year. She looks forward to working with the ACDC group to bring the youth voice to the planning of cultural events and encouraging more Torontonians to engage with the city's programming in the future. In her free time, Samantha enjoys working on a number of student theatre productions as a lighting designer, cooking and painting (usually by numbers).
