Send Silence Packing: Meet Samantha Greenhalgh

Hey everyone! My name is Samantha (you can call me Sam).

I am one of the new Send Silence Packing Staffers for the Fall 2016 Tour. I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham this past May, and from the moment I heard Active Minds was looking for new road staff, I knew I had to apply.

I joined UAB’s chapter of Active Minds as a freshman and in my four years I had the privilege of witnessing our little chapter grow from 4 members to 40 and more. Having hosted SSP on my own campus, I saw first-hand how the display could impact a community, and I am honored to be able to bring a similar effect to campuses across the country.

Joining the Active Minds Team as an SSP Staffer has given me the opportunity to stay involved with the organization, fulfill my love of travel, and continue making an impact on communities across the country.  Though we have only completed a few displays so far, I can already tell this is going to be extremely rewarding work. I am looking forward to what the rest of the tour has in store for us, and I cannot wait to share it with all of you!
