Samantha Doucette's Family

I was born and raised in Miami, Fla. My dad's side of my family is originally from Massachusetts and I still have family that lives on Cape Cod. My mom's side of the family is from Georgia and Florida. Both of my parents grew up in Miami as well. I have a younger and an older sister, and we were all born within five years of each other.

My older sister, Christina, is 24-years-old and graduated from Florida State University with a degree in hospitality and event management. She is currently engaged to her fiance, Leslie. They are getting married on March 16.

My younger sister, Victoria, is 19-years-old and lives in Boston. She is studying finance at Boston University. She graduated from high school at the top of her class and aspires to start her own nonprofit organization one day.

I grew up with Labrador retrievers in my family. So, when I went away to college, I definitely felt something was missing. So, I adopted a dog and named her Kaya. Ever since, she has become an integral part of our family and is one of the most loving animals you'll ever meet.


After graduating high school, I attended FSU for two years. I decided that it wasn't the place for me and moved back home to take a year off. I chose to apply to the University of Florida's college of journalism and mass communications. I am a senior studying journalism with an outside concentration in film studies.
