I got skills, I have talent, I am great personality, potential and I am humble. I am out spoken, smart and sometimes I think I have a lot to say about every and anything. Some people are talented and others are gifted. I am gifted in sports (basketball, soccer, track/field,) I am a gifted drummer, I am gifted in knowledge and also fashion. I feel as though I am ahead of my time and I also do things and make decisions that put me ahead of others and anything that I do. I can honestly say that the ReelFilm experience is one of those steps that i have taken that has open doors for me. I have had a chance to learn things/information that others don’t know or may not realize in the society that we live in, also in this program I have meet people that have high standards and have many connections that can lead me to success in life. One more thing, my name is Samuel Kabangai,  I was born in West African, Sierra Leone, I live in Philadelphia and I attend Science Leadership Academy (12th Grade). 🙂
