About Samantha Loera

Hello! My name is Samantha. Originally introduced as an intern in 2021 during my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago, I officially became part of the team in 2022! I’ve been an intern, program facilitator, and currently a substitute at GIoC. I have a background in Sociology, and I am currently enrolled at Jane Addams College of Social Work pursuing my Master’s degree. I identify as a youth advocate and I am passionate about youth development through mentorship and education. I hope to continue to create safe spaces for our young minds to flourish and become the next generation of strong, smart, and bold leaders!
