Samantha Derksen
I was born and raised in a small town outside of South Bend. My husband and I will be welcoming our first child this May. When I am not at Holy Cross College, you can find me in the kitchen baking or cooking or cheering at a basketball game.

Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Lake County (Indiana)

Walk the lake at the Grotto! I love walking here in each season and taking a special moment at the Grotto.
