Sammy Jo Cienfuegos


I am Sammy Jo Cienfuegos – a junior Writing & Rhetoric major and Viewpoints Editor for Hilltop Views. I'm involved with other orgs including It's On Us, B. Hooved and Topper Radio. I love writing as an advocate for social justice. In my free time, I enjoy exploring East Austin, eating spicy ramen, and writing poetry and plays.
