Meet the List-​​Lover, Lindsey

I love to plan, and my plan­ning addic­tion man­i­fests itself in lists. I live off of lists — lists of places I want to visit before I’m thirty, lists of foods I should try, lists of net­working con­tacts, and lists of com­pa­nies where I would be hon­ored to work. I am going into my mid­dler year (aka. I have some time before these plans become reality), but maybe it’s the thrill of the chase.

My com­pul­sive list-​​making keeps me in per­petual state of being both ner­vous and excited. I’m nervous/​excited. Nerve­cited? (I’m also into com­bining words. Once, in a blaze of glory, I com­bined the words “sweet potato” and “tater tot” to create the word equiv­a­lent of Optimus Prime, “sweet potatertot.” That kept me going for days.)

Here are a few quick facts about me:

  • Northeastern University middler studying International Affairs, Social Entrepreneurship, and Writing
  • Completed co-op in Spring 2013 at Institute for Healthcare Improvement
  • Contributing writer for Levo League, Your Coffee Break, & The Knurd

This fall, I’m packing my bags and heading to Edin­burgh, Scot­land for a semester abroad. You can follow my travels (if you’re into that sort of thing) at www​.more​awe​somer​.word​press​.com.

I love being part of the vibrant North­eastern com­mu­nity, and I look for­ward to tap­ping in to this com­mu­nity to help stu­dents make the most of what North­eastern has to offer. Career devel­op­ment is some­thing I am incred­ibly excited about — North­eastern is full of amazing talent, and giving stu­dents the resources to show­case that talent can lead to some life-​​changing career opportunities.

Every email sparks a con­nec­tion, so shoot one my way at lindseygsampson@​gmail.​com. Feel free to send me ques­tions, com­ments, spam, coupons to Boloco, or just a “Hello.” I’m big on that.
