Model Citizen | Sam York

In The Bag



Model Sam York made her move to the big apple three years ago after being scouted in her hometown. The Southern sweetheart struck our fancy in Shooting Star as she strutted down the streets of New York City wearing candy colored wigs and sky-high sparkly heels. Off-camera, Sam runs, Tasty, a quarterly art zine that seeks to build an engaging and nourishing environment for the creative community. We caught up with the busy bee, whose radiant ambition is as striking as her good lucks and charm.
