Sammy was born and raised in Longsight, Manchester to a Vietnamese Chinese family. She graduated from the University College of London this year and has since been working in film production. Her Chinese name is “Wong Mei Gwan”, which translates literally into “Yellow Beautiful Queen”. Since learning this, she refuses to be addressed by any other name.
