Samantha Skory
International Program Coordinator, World Affairs Council of San Antonio
Samantha Skory, originally from El Paso, has been an invaluable San Antonian for the last eight years. After graduating with psychology and communication degrees from Trinity University in 2016, she continued to pursue her education and received her master’s degree from St. Mary’s University in international relations in 2020. In this field, she has been working as an International Program coordinator with the World Affairs Council of San Antonio (WACOFSA). In addition to international relations, she also works as a graphic designer for various marketing and communication offices, as well as the Art Director for the Taylor’d For You team. Taylor’d For You is an organization that builds up San Antonio through fashion and community involvement. Over the last four years, they have raised over $80,000 for local nonprofits. Samantha is very interested in international politics, history, and the Cold War. She is currently learning Russian so she can expand upon her research on Eastern Europe and its global impacts. She lived in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2015 and fell in love with its civic infrastructure and architecture. Samantha enjoys traveling and is counting down the days until her next big adventure (once quarantine ends).
