Dancing has always played an important part in Samantha’s life and accounts for some of her most cherished memories. At five years old, Samantha, from Garden of Dreams partner organization NYPD Widows’ and Children’s Fund, started dancing by creating her own routines. Samantha and her sister, Alexis, have been part of the Garden of Dreams family since 2013. This past March, Samantha performed to “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga in the Garden of Dreams Talent Show at Radio City. In the future, Samantha wants to pursue psychology so that she can help others cope with their feelings.
