about Samantha Brinkley

Contact: samanthabrinkley@aim.com

Hello! My name is Samantha Brinkley. I am currently a freshman at SUNY Purchase College, majoring in Photography and minoring in Gender Studies.

I've been involved with SPARK Media Project since the summer of my freshman year in high school, taking part of the DROPtv program every summer as a youth producer. While I work on films there, I also try to delve into all forms of the arts, exploring anything from sculpture to painting to writing, even video games. Photography is my main passion, and I try to use what I've learned from photography and film making to broaden my mind with other forms of the arts.

Along with the arts, I also have a passion for feminism. I constantly am doing research on various issues going on with women in today's society and different ways to help fix it. I also try to help advocate for problems surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community as well as issues regarding race, helping educate myself and others along the way. 

I tend to be a very upbeat person, keeping whatever group I'm working with moving forward and making sure everyone's voice and opinion is heard. Whether I'm the leader of the group, or even just helping a little, I like to try and keep everyone focused and orientated on the task at hand. 

I'm looking forward to continuing my education at SUNY Purchase while also exploring opportunities outside of college!
