Samantha Berk is a junior at Milton Academy in Milton, Massachusetts. One of her greatest passions is writing, and she is an award-winning opinion writer for her school’s independent newspaper as well as a peer writing tutor. On Saturdays, she can be found sleeping late, playing goalie in field hockey or lacrosse, or competing for Milton’s Speech Team, where she is the Public Address Chair. She is co-head of her school’s Jewish Student Union, and sits on the boards of RYFTI, a Jewish youth group in Boston, and the Jewish Teen Foundation of Greater Boston, a philanthropy initiative. In her rare moments of free time, she is often puzzling through the New York Times crossword, walking her dog, Kensie, or playing guitar.
