Samara Lillioja is a Sophomore sopalto from Burr Ridge, IL studying Math and Psychology and maybe a few other things too or maybe neither because she hasn’t quite figured out her passions yet. When she’s not with Whispers, she often can’t be found at all because she’s alone in her room taking a nap (or on an adventure to John’s donuts). She spends most of her free time (this does not include nap time- that is strictly scheduled) on Whispers, whether that be musically or socially.
