At just 20 years old, Samantha Mullet is making a name for herself.
The Powegian, who graduated from in 2010 and now attends the University of San Francisco, was named Miss Poway in 2009. She’s also involved in Groundwork Opportunities, The House Ear Institute and finds time to volunteer as a tutor at USF.
But that’s not it—Mullet also made a name for herself by volunteering with the Poway Lions Club and the San Diego Children’s Hospital.
She’s faced challenges though.
“The most prominent challenge I’ve faced as a young woman is defying typical expectations,” she said. “I continually strive to further my professional career and personal goals with great determination and belief that I can seize what I set my mind to.
“My advice to other women would be to harness your passions and work towards your maximum potential. There are no limits to what you can achieve.”
What does Women’s History Month mean to you?
“To me, women’s history month celebrates the valiant struggle women fought in history to achieve equality. It’s a time for reflection and appreciation of all the opportunities women have in our society today.”
