This week we hear from Sam, who tells us about what’s important to him. Sam is part of the Sign Along with Us choir who were David Walliams’ Golden Buzzer act on Britain’s Got Talent earlier in the year – take a look out for him in the semi-finals! Thanks for chatting to us Sam.
Could you tell us a bit about yourself and your family?
Hi my name is Sam! I was born in April 1997 – that makes me 23. I am the older brother and have two younger brothers.
I have four dogs, who I love. They are called Molly, Jessie, Pippi and Ruby. They are labradoodles.
I love making new friends and seeing my old ones too.
Tell us about work?
I’m with Zebedee as a model and work as an extra on Hollyoaks. I like to be at Hollyoaks and on set! They are really nice people and the breakfast and lunches are really good!
I used to work in the kitchen at my old school. I’ve also worked in a supermarket and a cafe.
What are your hobbies?
I love to play with the dogs and go for walks. I’m always writing and love stationery!
I’m a huge fan of wrestling and my all time favourite wrestler is AJ Styles. (I used to do wrestling as well!)
I love being with my family and friends.
What are some of your favourite things?
My favourite programmes are wrestling, supernatural drama and sitcoms, like Friends. I love Joey best – he’s just like a kid!
I love all sorts of music – rock, rap…but mainly rock.
My favourite foods are pizza, burgers, lasagne and meatloaf. I’m famous in my family for trying burgers in so many restaurants! (I can’t help myself!)
I’m proud that I went to college and I worked hard. I was in Skills for Work and Living at New College Stamford and went on the college bus. I did Catering and Employability.
I’m proud that I’m good at trying new things. I wasn’t too big into exercise, but now I’m doing well.
Going on Britain’s Got Talent with Sign Along With Us and getting a Golden Buzzer was amazing! That makes me proud too. (It was David Walliams’ buzzer.) We are practising signing for the semi-finals!
I always say…
‘Everyone is different, and different is good!’
‘We all count!’
I think that’s important to remember!
