Birth & Early Life
  • Sam Collins was born on February 2, 1996, in Boston. He grew up in Saugus, a town in Essex County, Massachusetts, in the Greater Boston area. Since Sam is a female-to-male (FTM or F2M) transgender, he had a different name earlier. However, he has never revealed his real name. Sam initially sported a girly look. However, deep within, he knew he was a boy.
  • Sam has no siblings and was raised single-handedly by his mother. He was 8 when he met his father for the first time. From his days in elementary school to fifth grade, he did not realize the changes he went through. Toward the end of fifth grade, he started realizing he was different. This had a huge impact on his social life. His friends found it difficult to cope with Sam’s sudden behavioral changes. Sam transformed from a chirpy child to a reserved person. Thus, he lost many of his friends by the time he reached middle school. In his 'Draw My Life' video, he shared an incident that had happened in middle school. However, he narrated the story using fictional names. He shared that he was attracted to a girl whom he had met at his middle school’s summer camp. They were repeatedly harassed and bullied by his other classmates. Sam also mentioned that he would often pretend to be a boy on web chats.
