Sami received a B.A. in Political Science and Political Communications from Siena College in Albany, NY in May of 2022. During her time at Siena, she had the opportunity to work at the Siena College Research Institute which sparked an interest in Political Polling and how to improve the ways that a sample is selected for a survey to improve its accuracy. Outside of polling, Sami's interests include the Politics of Gender, Gender Representation in Congress, and Child Care Policy.
