“Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule”

This is my personal site dedicated to blending what I hear, feel, and believe is relevant to the music, art and entertainment industries. No matter the source - friends, family, internet, playground - I will carefully craft my thoughts and messages so that you get the best entertainment experience on the Internet; don't be afraid to reach out because I may feature YOU and YOUR latest project on SammyApproved.

"Did you know that there is ANOTHER Sammy Sosa, apparently he's like a baseball player or something - sheesh, I'd hate to share a name with someone as cool as The Real Sammy."

My name is Chelsea N. Samuel, but you can call me Sammy. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, but I currently call D.C. home as I study Television Production at Howard University. I am extremely interested in entertainment, music and arts - so I enjoy writing about each of these topics with respect to my personal emotions, interests and experiences.

I host, plan and orchestrate all sorts of events. Additionally, I have written, directed and produced short abstract films that provoke thought and encourage creativity. Being surrounded by musicians all of my life, as well as self-teaching myself how to play different instruments has helped cultivate my passion for music - which has in turn sparked my interest in other forms of art and entertainment.

I have interned with Radio One DC, Inc. and Storyville Entertainment, Inc. At these two internships, I have learned about what it takes to be a creator in the entertainment, art and music industries. I understand that in this age of technology and information, the big players in the industry can no longer dictate what we feel is art - and we all have a unique opinion about what is being created in the world. I'm here to share mine with you.
