About Sam

My name is Sam Matagi. I am an upper extremity bilateral amputee. I lost both of my hands in a working accident involving electrical wires. When I am not referring for after school activities as a volunteer, I am a peer visitor for other amputees who got into accidents. My interests include playing basketball, flying drones, and playing video games. I would like to be full-time employee despite my disability. I am more capable than most.
