During #AskSam session, Sam was also asked, “What do you say to youngsters and teenagers about making wrong decisions in life?”

She replied, “I wish I could protect you from them. when I hear young people say that my life is over, this is the worst thing that could happen to me I’m like oh God! (smiles), no it's not the worst thing that could happen to you. Life is just getting started. There would be a lot of hardships and difficulties that you’ll face along the way and you have to face and will end. Sometimes you end up being much stronger than you were and I think that’s what happened to me and there’s no way the 25-year-old me would have thought that I would be here today with all of the issues that I’ve had in my life and be stronger, happier more positive than I’ve ever been in my life but I think that takes growing up.”
