Samantha "Sam" Azure grew up on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana. Most of her high school classmates didn't go to college, but her parents pushed her and her brothers to take advantage of opportunities they never had. During her last year of high school she looked at local state colleges and a few top-notch universities, including Stanford.
