Sammy’s a PhD candidate in Entomology at the University of Maryland. He graduated from Cornell University after having grown up in the DC area.
Being raised with two pastors as parents instilled a strong sense of faith in him. As he grew older, he noticed he could no longer sweep the feelings he’d been having regarding his sexual orientation under the rug, so he took matters into his own hands. Today, he’s openly gay and is as strong in his faith as ever.
