In fifth grade, Samm decided she didn't want to have a boy's nickname and started writing "Sam" as "Samm". She likes to think this showed great individuality and creativity...not to mention a deep understanding of homophones.

Since then, Samm has moved from Hong Kong, where she lived for seven years, to Massachusetts, where she attended high school at Milton Academy and studied sociology at Harvard College. She now lives in New York City and works as a Brand Director at the award-winning fashion and lifestyle site Refinery29
