Padua 360

Samantha K. ’24
Samantha Kornsey is a member of the freshman class at Padua Academy from Pennsville, New Jersey. She chose Padua because she wanted to get away from her small town school and meet new people. She is loving Padua so far!

Samantha’s friends would describe her as “empathetic and caring”, or that she wears her heart on her sleeve.

“I really enjoy relating to my people through conversation about our similar hobbies and interests,” she said. “They bring on the most genuine conversations.”

Samantha enjoys many things but her favorite by far is music. She is a huge fan of One Direction, Taylor Swift, and Fleetwood Mac. 

“I am a real music lover,” Samantha said. “Hearing music live and in the moment is the most freeing thing to me.”

Her other hobbies are makeup, walking her dog, Willow, and reading different anime comics like “Avatar” and “Legend of Korra”. 

Samantha is not a fan of online learning. She found it difficult to learn remotely and is glad to at least partially be in class.

Rather than letting quarantine get her down, Samantha has blossomed into what she believes is the “best version of herself”. She achieved this by incorporating healthy living in her day-to-day life to improve physically and mentally.

“I really used quarantine to work on myself, and develop who I am,” she said.
