ILSA is pleased to announce a new addition to our team, Samantha Wilson, who will be taking over as Program Assistant. Originally from Washington state, Samantha is a recent transplant to the Baltimore-DC area. She graduated from McDaniel College (Westminster, MD) in 2018, completing her studies in Political Science and French Language & Culture. An avid international learner, she most recently completed a year abroad in Cote d’Ivoire as a Fulbright-appointed English Teaching Assistant. When she isn’t working on the Jessup, Samantha enjoys eating copious amounts of papaya, practicing Muay Thai, reading books of varying genres, and learning Russian. We hope everyone will welcome her to the team.
