My name is Samantha Paige Averett. I was born in Southeast Idaho and lived with my mother and sister until the age of 12. My mother died of Leukemia in the middle of my 6th grade year of school. I then moved to live with dad, about 75 miles from where I was born. My sister graduated high school in 2009 and moved to Boise, ID. I lived with my a family friend my junior and senior year of high school after my dad moved to Seattle, WA. I graduated high school in June 2011.
I recently graduated Utah State University in Logan, Utah. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science with a minor in Sociology. I want to obtain my MSW. (Masters in Social Work) I desire to work in the justice/legal system. I’d also love to work with veterans, homeless, fosters, and former convicts.
I have written 7 + novels in which I have yet to publish. I’m a writer. I’m a poet. I truly feel I am able to best express myself through words on a page rather than words in the air. I would like to be a published author, but there are many things on my bucket list. I’m just trying to live one day at a time.
I have the greatest family and friends in the world. I’m not kidding. I have the best support in the world and I don’t think I tell the ones I love the truth nearly enough. I have such great examples, idols and advisors in the world. I’m truly grateful.
I’m not perfect. I’m only human. When I was 14 I was in an extremely dark place. I’ve written about this is two of my blog posts which include: Something to somebody & My way out of Neverland. I hope my writings can bring hope to somebody in need. I’ve always been a strong advocate for those contemplating taking their owns lives. I will always fight for them to live and be on their side.
I am politically involved in the world. I watch the news. I watch CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, etc. I watch it all. I like to get the whole thing. But I know that media isn’t always the best representation of what is really happening, so I don’t always rely on the news to inform me. I’m always doing my research and trying to be as accurate as I can. When I’m alone, I pretend I am a famous Congresswoman talking about important issues socially and economically. I guess I’m practicing for my future 😉
I hope you enjoy my blog. Thanks for hearing me out.
