Samantha Noel was born and raised in the Los Angeles and the Inland Empire located in Southern California.  She has a bit of a Southern flare since she lived in Houston for a few years. This blog highlights Samii’s lifestyle and journey as a mommy-to-be, freelance journalist, professional tourist, and beauty care enthusiast!  Her friends and family always joke about how random her day to day stories are, and she loves to share them.

She studied Broadcast Journalism at Texas Southern University. While residing in Houston,  Samii worked as a radio personality and news reporter for several radio shows.  She also appeared on multiple networks including CW and BET as a field reporter and correspondent.

Samantha Noel currently travels, works in comedy, volunteers within her community, and is a freelance media correspondent.  Her experience as a Night Manager and Communications Assistant at the Laugh Factory Hollywood extended her love for entertainment to the world of comedy.  Samii created and executive produced a comedy room called ‘Comedy Vibes,’  that showcased today’s biggest names in comedy and allowed comedians  to reach new audiences as well.

Samii is now compiling her travel experiences into a blog and featuring  photos and videos online through her project called ‘Locals vs. Tourist!’

As a tourist we plan out our trips from our flights all the way down to our first and last meal. We have selfie sticks ready to take pictures in front of the landmarks we’ve always dreamed of seeing, but we skip over the true beauty an authenticity of the places we travel to. As a traveler we should take the time to meet the locals and grasps every ounce of culture that area has to offer.

This project will highlight her travels in the eyes of tourists using popular traveling apps to select her initial itinerary. Samii will also get to know the locals and experience their town through their day to day lives and see what makes them love their city so much! Follow Samantha Noel as she travels and explores life as a local and tourist, and shares her favorite experiences!
