AN INTERVIEW WITH SAM CHAAYA
An All-Around Athlete
Sam attends Concordia University's Computer Science program in Montreal. He is a graduate of the prestigious Marianopolis College.
I have been watching him for two years at the
club where we work out.
I have also chatted with him on several
occasions and was impressed.
He’s sociable, speaks several languages and is
mature beyond his years.
When he’s on vacation, he’s constantly
exercising in one way or another.
I was most impressed with the respect he has
for his parents
and his gratitude for all that they do for him.
This is why I felt that I should interview him.
