"There is real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment."
Hello! My name is Samantha Bowers and I am graduating from the University of Missouri with a Bachelors of Journalism this May (2019). My favorite thing about journalism: it's always changing. My emphasis area, convergence television reporting, has prepared me to adapt to, grow with, and thrive across the emerging media platforms.
With the rise of social media and digital journalism, I believe it is important for a multimedia television journalist to engage with their audience across multiple mediums. My experience building a personal brand online and on-air has prepared me to create and promote authentic, engaging content and build a genuine relationship with viewers.
Work hard. Give back. Every day is an opportunity to leave a lasting impact on the lives of others. Several charities I work with and advocate for include:
The Ronald McDonald House
Warriors for Ross
The One Love Foundation
Love is Respect
