About the City's Organizers
Samantha Nienow is the founder of Bemidji’s PKN chapter and believes that every person has at least one story the community needs to hear. It’s just a matter of drumming up the courage to share it. Samantha was terrified of public speaking until about three years ago. Before that, she would never have dreamed of presenting a 20×20. For her day job as a graphic design / presentation designer, Samantha enjoys learning what makes her clients tick and helping them share their unique stories—which is probably why she was drawn to Pecha Kucha Night! Samantha is very active and loves biking, triathlons, and cross-country skiing with her dogs. She also admits to having an obsession with Post-It notes, and often enjoys a nice cup of her favorite black tea—Earl Grey de le creme from Holly’s Tea & Gift Shoppe.
