Full name: Samuel Robinson
Pathway: Culinary Arts
When asked about his decision to apply to Singley Academy, Samuel explained, "I wanted to have a jumpstart on my college experience, and I knew that Singley Academy would provide me with the opportunity to learn real-world skills."
Samuel's aspirations extend beyond high school, with plans to attend Georgia Tech and pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering. His dream career? Working for The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
For students considering applying to Singley Academy, Samuel offered the following advice: "Push yourself and work hard to the best of your abilities – don’t compare yourself to others. As long as you are giving it your all, you will be successful. Also, it is OK if you accept a pathway that wasn’t your first choice. The knowledge and skills you learn will be useful in whatever your future may hold. Remember to have fun!"
In a lighter note, Samuel shared a fun fact about himself, "I was born in Michigan and moved to Texas when I was 6. I also entered a mall singing competition when I was 7 and won! I sang 'Dynamite' by Taio Cruz."
