Bio

Samuel is currently a writer and editor working with organizations mandated to enrich the community. He holds a degree in English Literature from McMaster University and a graduate degree in Journalism from the University of King's College. He works with a community newspaper published in Canada's two official languages: English and French. With a mandate of bridging the many cultures and ethnic communities in Metro Vancouver, the Source Newspaper focuses on promoting diversity and interculturalism. He also works with other non profits like the YWCA in promoting their vision of empowering women and helping build better futures for them and their families through advocacy and integrated services that foster economic independence, wellness and equal opportunities.

He is excited to be a Passages to Canada Youth Ambassador for 2013-2014 because telling stories comes naturally to him, and Canada's history is an ever-developing one—a story worth telling and listening to. Samuel is eager to encourage people of all ages to contribute, not only to the nourishment of their own tale, but to the betterment of Canadian society and a rich history.
