Education: Sam graduated from New York University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism and psychology after meeting requirements for both majors.

In addition to finishing with journalism honors, Sam also graduated cum laude and was a member of the Dean's Presidential Honor Scholars throughout her time as an undergrad. While at New York University, Sam began her career in media with an internship at FoodGem her junior year and an internship at Delish her senior year.
