What inspires Samantha:
“I am inspired by other people who keep going and remain optimistic despite their challenges. Listening to or reading about the goodness in the world gives me hope and inspires me to keep going. I also find inspiration in a leisurely walk or quiet sit in nature, which give me a chance to process and refresh.”
