Personal History Samantha's childhood was at one point sweet and cute, that lasted up to her teenage years when she started to rebel against everything. Her parents, authority figures, society in general. Her parents were at a loss as to what to do to curb Samantha's violent tendencies. Eventually after she was suspended from her fourth school and the police force beginning to take more of a firm hand in response to her actions it was decided that for her own good she would be sent to Military Academy.

Aside from meeting aggressive resistance from Samantha she arrived at the at Military Academy. Her induction to her new home didn't go smoothly, on her first day she struck out against one of the instructors when ordered to her dormitory. She was subdued easily much to her surprise and was put in detention for three days. Things went this way for most of the first semester and more fights with Instructors and fellow students followed. Without her knowing her parents fought hard to keep her in the Academy, despite her rule breaking, fighting, disobedience and difficult nature.

It was during a stint in detention when it dawned on her that something had to change and the system wouldn't so it left her. When she was released she went to see the Commandant, there the two of them discussed a few things. She realized that she couldn't keep going on this way, it was not making her parents proud, she'd lost her self respect and sooner or later she'd end up in prison. The Commandant could see she had potential but needed direction, molding into shape, fine tuning into something she could use.

Her change came much to the relief of everyone around her including her parents. She began to focus and achieve, even taking part in classes and learning other skills. Graduation saw her reach the top 4% of her class and the respects of those around her, even those she once attacked and tormented. At the end of the ceremony she went to see the Commandant again. There she discussed with him a recommendation for Officers training at the Starfleet Marine Academy.

Thus starting her career as a full fledged Marine.
