Hello, there! My name is Leslie Knope. Just kidding. Sometimes, I wish I were Leslie Knope – but I am perfectly content with being myself. My name is Samantha Andico and I’m a 21 year-old student currently attending a university in Southern California. This is my third attempt at keeping a blog purely for writing. Hopefully it all works out, especially since I have a better idea of what I want to talk about here.
I’ve always been a huge fan of popular culture – whether it be movies, comics, television, music – and as a communication major, I get to write about it a lot. I’m thinking about using this space to share some essays from my media studies classes, write about my favorite TV shows and films, just take a huge smorgasbord of things I like, and write about them. I will probably write about college life as well for those who are curious about university life in SoCal.
So, welcome aboard! This is my world.
Why “samiyoncé says”?
I am a huge fan of Beyoncé. I would love to emulate her confidence and her independent and loving spirit. My friends and I were joking around on Twitter one day and I joking called myself “Samiyoncé”, and it stuck. “Samiyoncé” sort of serves as my “Sasha Fierce” of sorts – while emulating Beyoncé’s fabulousness, I want to find that same ferocity inside myself. Hence, Samiyoncé – the best of both worlds (tl;dr: having a role model is great – but you also have a lot of potential as an individual).
