Samantha A. Hill, M.S. is the Upward Bound Director, at Weber State University, the ASPIRE Social Justice Committee Co-Chair, and Utah ASPIRE President-Elect. Samantha’s passion for social justice began over ten years ago when she started advocating for friends suffering from mental illness and working for visibility of suicide prevention community groups. Since then, it has become very apparent to her that there are countless social justice issues that need advocates, and there is so much good work still to be done. She is grateful that her work with Upward Bound allows her to give a voice to the voiceless through the work that she does on a daily basis for her pre-college students and their families.
