In an exclusive interview with www.ethiofidel.com, Samuel stressed the need to get united and get involved in Canadian civic and political system by young Canadians. Samuel has been known as a committed volunteer community activist and a journalist for TZTA, Next generation, and the Huffington post. He is board member for Africans in Partnership against AIDS (APAA) and receives several other awards.
