Hi there. My name is Sam. I'm 26 years old and come from Jersey in the United Kingdom. I'm a very outgoing person who loves to entertain, teach and have fun with everyone. I'm very enthusiastic and optimistic and love making new friends. A few things in life that I love to do are skateboarding, hiking and swimming. (Anything energetic and outdoorsy). I've been skateboarding for about 13 years now and it is one of my greatest passions in life, just because it is so fun to do and can be great fun for anyone.
I own a dog so am out everyday exploring and going on long walks which I love to do. I also enjoy filming and photography. I try to get out as often as I can to make a video for Youtube or take pictures for my social networking sites. I used to want to be an actor but found my talents behind the camera. Ever since then I studied television and film and finally received my honours degree from university in 2017. I'm a very fun, loving, caring person who will always put others needs before my own. I am always looking to help and teach whoever wants it and will go out of my way to ensure that who I care about is happy.
How many years have you worked at CCB?: This will be my first year
What is your must bring item to CCB?: My must bring item to CCB would be sun cream. It'll be summer time and I expect to spend everyday outdoors having fun with the campers so I will definitely need to bring some good sun cream.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: My favourite hobby is skateboarding. I try to go out as often as I can. Living in Scotland, It does make it difficult with all the rain though. But it is something I've grown up doing and is something that I love doing no matter what.
What are you famous for?: I would say Youtube but to my friends and family I'm know very well to be somewhat of a goof. A fun, loving goof. I am always energetic, making people laugh and doing my best to brighten up a room.
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: My biggest achievement so far is that I have an honours degree from university. It is difficult for someone to know what they want to do in life and it took me until I was 21 to figure this out. I used to want to be a vet, then an actor but what I truly loved doing was writing scripts, producing films and going out there and filming what I had created. I went to college/university for 5 years to study this and I am so proud that I finally found something I was great at and could have a career with.
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: I am looking forward to meeting all the exciting and wonderful people I'll be working with and especially working with and making incredible memories with the campers too. Getting out there, doing exciting and new things and having a blast for the whole summer sounds like a perfect way to spend the summer. I love teaching and sharing my passions and knowledge with people and I am excited that I'll be able to do this too.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I want to create wonderful memories for the children that I am taking care of and teaching. I want them to look back at the summer of 2018 and think of me and how I helped them experience an exciting summer they'll never forget. I believe I will be teaching skateboarding this summer so when a camper is struggling to learn something I will do everything it takes to help that person out and create such happiness for that person when they succeed at what they were wanting to acheive.
What is your favorite quote?: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”(Dr Seuss – I can read with my eyes shut!) I love this quote because it shows you that if you have the curiosity to learn then there will be more waiting for you at the end. By learning a new skill or taking in all that knowledge that you have been taught over your life you can use it to go places, make a difference in the world and in your life. Learn something that will change your life and it will bring great opportunities to you.
