Samantha Michelle Hammond is the last of four children to be born to a rather quirky and gigantic Pureblood family whom are historically known for their size. Her mother stuck to tradition and decided to have a child every four years, give or take.
Her degree of closeness to her siblings varies - Keira, the oldest sister, left the house when Sam was only 4. This meant they never spent a lot of time together despite being on friendly terms. She is closer to her other two siblings. However, due to her undiagnosed learning disability, she demanded a lot more attention from her parents - this made it so they wound up somewhat neglected, a fact Samantha will never forgive herself for.

Instead she watched the convoluted life of every other person in the house and quickly acquired the skills to comfort them and read through them in a trial by fire, contributing to her social butterfly ways of present days.
She isn't entirely sure if she'll pass to the sixth year, and is hoping not to disappoint her parents and friends. In the meantime, all she can do is keep studying hard.

Confiding in Travis Franklin, she was able to minimally open her mind to the possibility of having some sort of mental issue preventing her from achieving her full potential; though, after much consideration, she still felt quite ashamed and didn't bring it up to her family. Instead she threw herself at school work tenfold.
As her birthday rolled around with the new year, Samantha decided it was time to get herself a job - not having the guarantee on whether she'd graduate at all some day or not, she knew that learning some sort of trade was the way to go so to ensure an income in the future. She managed to get hired by The Sweet Tooth bakery as a trainee, and, with a new mentor, her baking expertise reached new heights; at least she could do something in her life she didn't feel too poorly about...
