Humans of Allen: Samantha Pham


Sara Schleede, Editor-in-chief

“I didn’t consider taking IB until mid-semester 2 last year. I was miserable. I didn’t come to school because I didn’t want to be put in an environment where I felt like anything I did in that class was inadequate and that I just wasn’t doing enough as a student. Being in IB has [changed] that. I went from not going to school at all, hating going to class and dreading getting an assignment because I was afraid of the grade I was going to get to now wanting to go to school every day and loving being in my class. Even during breaks I miss my friends and being in a classroom and learning.”
