Samra (Sam) Bufkins

University of North Texas, Mayborn School of Journalism
Lecturer, Public Relations and Social Media
Denton, TX
I'm a former TV news producer turned public relations pro now in my third career teaching social media and PR campaigns to college students. I'm a digital native trapped in an old broad's body (I've lived in seven decades and two millennia) but I developed the first strategic social media class at the University of North Texas. I'm a walking anachronism--dedicated social media and news junkie who writes with fountain pens and still tries to leave two spaces after periods. I was awarded the UNT Honor Professor award last year by the Student Government Association. I love journalism, I love teaching, and after 5 years of winging it I'm here to learn more and make connections. More here: https://about.me/samrabufkins
