Sam's previous experience includes serving as the Vice President of Programming for the Morrison Tower Hall Council, the political intern for Congressman Brad Sherman (CA-30), and working on the Clinton Presidential Campaign. He will be working at a Syrian refugee camp in Greece for the summer of 2018. After spending time in the Middle East, Sam was inspired to pursue a law degree, specializing in International and Human Rights law. Before doing so, he dreams of joining the Peace Corps to work on youth and community development. Sam is a strong believer in standing up for those in need, and hopes to spend the rest of his life doing so. In his free time, Sam loves to travel and learn languages! More than anything, he loves strumming his guitar on the beach.
