Hello, friends!

My name is Sam(antha) and I'm a college student from a small town in Massachusetts.  I'm currently studying physics in hopes of one day achieving my dream to work for NASA as a research scientist.  I love all things space/astronomy/physics related. Science has been my passion since I was a toddler, when my mother would take me to the library to look at all the astronomy picture books.  Since my toddler days, I've had many opportunities to immerse myself many in really cool experiences such as visiting Mauna Kea (one of the best sites in the world for astronomical observation) where I stargazed at 9,200 ft., Space Camp (where I fulfilled a childhood dream), and attending a NASA Social event where I had the opportunity to visit the New Horizons headquarters at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

Apart from my obsession with all things space, I also imagine myself as an aspiring filmmaker. I love documentaries and I am frequently found watching "daily vlogs" of other people's lives on YouTube. I've been active on YouTube as a video maker since 2006 and have recently oriented my channel as a place to document my life and adventures.

I started this blog because I wanted a place where I could write about my experiences as a woman in a STEM major and to document my general life thoughts and experiences. The name "spacexplorersam" is the name I've been using online for about 8 years now, so i'm pretty much stuck with it (I still think it's pretty cool).
