My name is Samantha Mellman. I’m a 26 year old young professional living in Boston, Massachusetts. I grew up in suburban Boca Raton, Florida and earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Florida Atlantic University in 2012. I moved to Boston the following year to pursue my master’s degree in journalism at Boston University.
