Samantha Booth
Swansea, University of Wales

I’m Samantha Booth, an English Literature graduate from Swansea University now studying my NCTJ in Wolverhampton. I’ve been contributing various content to The National Student since the beginning of university.

Alongside this, I was the Features Editor of The Waterfront and co-founder and Station Manager of SU-TV at Swansea University.

In 2014, I won NUS Wales Student Journalist of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to Student Media at SUSU.

I throughly enjoy interviewing a variety of people for The National Student, including Katie Price, Hollywood stuntman Doug Coleman, Anthrax legend Scott Ian and many other new and old bands.

Past times include drinking chai, reading American fiction and showing people photos of my dog.
