Sam Wilk is a junior at Ballard High School and participated in the Summer Immersion trip of 2016. He was drawn to Global Visionaries by the incredible cultural experience it entailed and the community it claimed to build and was brought into the second year program because of this community and the friendships he gained. The experience taught Sam the importance of using the position of power one is put in to help those in need and reminded him that there is still an immense amount of work to do for the world.
Outside of Global Visionaries, Sam spends his time playing Ultimate Frisbee, training with his performing youth circus troupe, or doing homework. He enjoys hanging out with friends and being outdoors. Sam is eager to use his experience on the trip and opportunities on the board to help shape the program for future participants.
