Sam is also working towards her Duke of Edinburgh Award. She was an integral member of the college women’s basketball team in 2008 and plans to become a qualified personal trainer. To top this off, Sam has just been successful in gaining her provisional licence. Certainly seems that nothing is stopping her!
