Her passion for storytelling and making people laugh, often at her own expense, reinforced the deep need she sees that all people long to connect on a deeper, more authentic and vulnerable level. We live in a world that is so fast paced where people are busier than ever yet also lonelier than ever. As the introvert's extrovert, Samantha talks to people, so you don't have to...for now.
