I was raised in a small town in Texas called Giddings, it has a population just around 5,000, but from here is where I sparked interest into many things. In my high school years I was involved in as much as I could get my hands one, including Drum line, UIL Academics, DECA, and so much more. During high school I was a leader in many things, I was Drum line Captain, DECA Chapter President, BADD President, UIL Current Issues and Events Team Leader, and was highly ranked in my class. I also was very involved with my church and did as many volunteer events as I could get my hands on. I even founded a Christian Work-Out organization called "Christ-Out". From all of this though grew my joy for helping and serving others. I knew that law and politics was the way for me to go. I realized that with my knowledge and what I enjoy I could be the most helpful to people by going into public service and serving as many people as possible. I am attending Concordia University Texas to study both Political Science and Business and look forward to furthering my education by getting a law degree from a top tier law school in Texas. After this I plan on joining the political world, serving and leading as many people as I can.
Hello! I was homeschooled since I was in 7th grade. I am now a freshmen in University called Sacred Heart University. I am in the Concert Choir and I am doing multiple community service. I feed the poor, and service projects that help benefit my community. I moved across the country to go to school. I use to live in LA now am in Connecticut! I love helping others and singing for the choir. I am planning to become a Virologist once I graduate and work for the CDC. What drives me is, seeing people hurt and broken. No one deserves to be alone. My passions and my faith keeps me going. However, helping others and community service has been my passion throughout my entire life! I can't wait to work for Student Government and promote community service!

I have a truly international learning experience as I finished IB Diploma Programme in Poland, then moved to Shanghai to study at NYU Shanghai and I am currently in New York at NYU's main campus. I am majoring in Interactive Media and Business at New York University Shanghai (my major includes development of software, the manipulation of digital media, the fabrication of material objects, the production of electronic devices, the construction of virtual and physical spaces, the investigation of as yet unrealized digital forms and being able to quickly adapt one's skills to rapidly changing technology). During my junior year, I am going to pursue two minors at NYU Tisch and NYU Stern in NY: Producing and Business of Media and Entertainment. I am Polish, but my internship experience is not limited to Europe only. I have interned for big Chinese media companies and helped develop startups in Shanghai, China. During 2 years in China, I have gained deep understanding of Chinese work environment. To immerse myself better in Chinese culture, I was admitted to Princeton in Beijing - an intensive 2-month intermediate Chinese language study program. My global education helps easily adapt to rapidly changing international work environment. I feel comfortable wherever I go and my ability to speak 5 languages (English, Polish, French, Mandarin Chinese and a bit of Russian) helps me communicate effectively with my team.
My name is Sam. I currently attend Penn State University, majoring in Information Sciences & Technology. I plan to work in the IT field upon graduation. At Penn State, I attended Abington, which is a campus of Penn State outside of Philadelphia, for three years, and took part in SGA and THON, and every so often went to the main campus in University Park for student government meetings with the other nineteen campuses of Penn State in a collaborative organization known as CCSG. I live in the City of Philadelphia, about 30 minutes from downtown, and have lived here all my life. I am an extremely hard working, dedicated, and motivated individual.
