This week I had the pleasure of talking to Corinne Sampson, a third-year dance science major full of vitality and smiles. She is studying anatomy and kinesiology, and, being a dancer herself, wants to be a physical therapist for dancers and spend her time helping those who have injured themselves following their passion.
Corinne was born and raised in Santa Cruz, a casual beach town a seven hour drive north of CSULB, just south of San Francisco. She is passionate about dance, and has been at it since she was four years old. Ballet is her favorite, but she enjoys and admires all types of dance, such as jazz and modern.
Corinne also enjoys drawing (mostly abstract things), and makes jewelry on the side as a hobby. She is very artistic and creative, and enjoys anything pertaining to those things. Her favorite musical genres are mellow, acoustic sounds, and she loves the band Bastille.
Corinne lives in a small apartment near CSULB with another girl, and, although she has a Lab named Jedi (like in Star Wars) at home in Santa Cruz, she wishes she could get a pet in her apartment as well. She loves the beach and coffee, so the little beachside coffee shop named Bogart’s at Seal Beach is one of her favorite places.
