Samantha Sophia Sisterlocks

Corporate Chic. Freelance Writer. Speaker. Commentator. Bookworm. Wanderer.

Samantha Broxton is a Jill of many random trades (hence her nickname: Random Sam). Born to Caribbean immigrants, Samantha grew up in South Florida, where she was widely known as an awkward duck that spent way too many hours reading period or science fiction novels and watching films released decades prior to her conception. She went on to graduate from the University of South Florida, where she left her mark as an insanely active student leader and learned to be less of an introvert.

Personally, Samantha is an accidental Mother of two and ecstatic wife to one (her very own Mr. Darcy). When she is not spending 50 hours a week in the office, she volunteers for Bankers Without Borders, speaks publicly to anyone who will listen, and live tweets her favorite shows. In her spare time (when she should be sleeping), Samantha also runs a successful natural hair and living blog: Sisterlocked.com and random life blog: RaisingSelf.com, as well as editing random life videos under her YouTube persona. She’s also known for making her own skincare products and food from scratch (her homemade vanilla whipped cream recipe is to die for!).

Professionally, Samantha’s done everything from originating and managing multi-million dollar commercial loans to leading a failed internet start-up. Currently, Samantha is a Commercial Risk Manager for a global fortune 500 company in sunny Southern California.

    Thank you for this site, and for your honesty. On this rainy afternoon (won’t spring ever come?) I am feeling depressed at how my five year old seems to take all that she has for granted and seemingly without joy–unless we are doing exactly what she wants to do when she wants it. I struggle between being too stern a mother and feeling guilty that I want a happy, healthy child who is also polite, considerate, appreciative, etc. at least most of the time. I don’t know what the balance is. Everyone says, “oh all children are self-centered at that age,” but I think about disadvantaged children who seem to have the ability to be thankful for the smallest things. I love my daughter, but honestly, motherhood does not come naturally to me. Thanks for listening.

    I love your website. I found you via meetup the Pregnancy, Birth and New Moms group. We are in the same boat I have a 2 month old baby girl and a two year old girl. I am breast-feeding and dealing with all the awesome and awkward moments that comes with that as you chronicle so well on your page. Thanks for sharing and I hope to see you at one of the meetups.
