Sammy has already begun to work closely with Tony Faiola and Adam Taylor, who are anchoring Today’s WorldView on an interim basis while columnist Ishaan Tharoor is on parental leave.
Sammy grew up in various countries, including Germany, Azerbaijan and the Philippines, where she began her journalism career as a reporting intern for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. She interned later for the Toledo Blade; when a 2020 internship at The Post was postponed by the pandemic, she spent the summer instead as a Southeast Asia reporter for Vice.
Sammy is a graduate of Yale University, with a B.A. in history and political science; she was also editor in chief and president of the Yale Daily News. Upon her graduation in May, she was honored by the university with awards for journalism and nonfiction and with another prize as the "senior who most consistently challenged the social and intellectual conscience” of her residential college.
Sammy speaks intermediate Spanish and basic German and Filipino.
Please join us in congratulating Sammy on her new role, which begins Jan. 3.
