Samantha Santiago - Naya Rivera - 23 years old - Barista at the local cafe.
There’s two sides to Samantha, just like a coin. There’s the side that she shows to people at her work and then the side she shows to ones that are true to her. Samantha isn’t too keen about her job at the cafe, people can be rude and disrespectful but Sam has her friend, Amanda, to keep her through the days. Yet, on the other side of her shiny self, Samantha is nothing more than a quirky girl with a love for many things. She enjoys being outside and listening to the talent that comes through the cafe, which ends up helping her meet the two brothers and sister that would be the Hastings siblings - being their guide through America. Samantha likes making jokes and getting others to laugh, it makes her feel better about herself. She’s the type of person who can listen, she’s the type of person who is quick to make her opinion heard and let it be known when she’s upset. The world is a challenging event for Samantha and she just wants to make it through okay, just like the rest. She’s learned that life is hard but she rather just strive through it and get better than what she is - knowing that the world is out there for her to conquer.
