Samuel Yeboah is from Ghana, Africa and is 23 years old. He has been in the United States for about 15yrs and completed his Bachelors in Biology and Chemistry at East Carolina University. His ultimate career goal is to become a physician. However, during his time-off, he wanted to be part of something greater than himself or his goals. Hence, he chose the Episcopal Service Corps (The Abraham Project). Sam feels the program not only allows him to focus on others and the community; but also, permits him to become an extension of the world around him. At first, what really drew him to the program was the faith-based aspect. Though, he had never been to an Episcopalian Church or even met one; he thought this would be a good experience and a stepping-stone for a career in service. In short, it is his hope that through the program he will understand what it means to truly serve others; but moreover, what it means to give back to ones community, not only through physical labor but also through a spiritual lens and context.
