Samantha Brown
Samantha Brown is an 8th grade STEAM Magnet student here at Dana Middle school. This is her second year in Journalism. She is the Co-Editor-in-Chief of The Dana Mariner. Before coming to Dana, she had gone to Portuguese Bend Nursery school and then Point Fermin Elementary. She was also born in San Pedro.

Some of Samantha’s interests are playing volleyball, swimming, reading, and hanging out with her friends. Her favorite subject at Dana now is history and math because it’s interesting. A job that interests Samantha is being a marine biologist, because “Ever since I was little I wanted to be a marine biologist I’ve always found the ocean very interesting” she states.

        As for journalism, the reason why she had chose journalism this year is because, “I love to write and this class gives me an opportunity to do that. I also chose this elective because in this class I can be myself, and I can just open up and be comfortable.” Samantha also hopes to do this in high school. Her goal is to be successful and become a Marine Biologist.
