Sam is originally from Victoria. She first ran away from home at age 14 with her best friend. She was living in foster care at the time. She said it was weird and creepy. They ran away to Vancouver but were found by the police because they looked so young. Sam has experienced many family difficulties. Her dad was an alcoholic and her mom passed away from cirrhosis of the liver. Also, she didn't get along with her step-dad. The hardest part of her life currently is trying to maintain sobriety, especially in a place like this (Mount Edward) where addictions/addicts are so prevalent. Sam recently graduated from cosmetology school. In the past she's done a lot of customer service retail work and has worked as a receptionist. Moving forward, she'd like to do more barbering work as she feels it allows more creativity than doing women's hair. She enjoys doing other people's hair in the building. It makes her feel good to help other people with their hair and make-up. What makes her happy is her two little girls. If she had unlimited resources, she'd like to take the Indigenous Support Program at Camosun. She would appreciate others to pray for a sense of peace for her and to pray for her sister and hope that she's okay.
