Samuel Owusu

Samuel Owusu attends Davidson College in North Carolina. He is heavily involved with the African Students Association, volunteering, and student government. Through the Chicago Summer Business Institute (CSBI), Samuel interned at the City of Chicago Department of Finance in the accounts receivable department where he completed a vast array of tasks. Unlike many of the students in the CSBI program Samuel is not pursuing a career in finance. He is a Political Science major who hopes to run for office someday. His internship at the Chicago Department of Finance allowed him to meet many local Chicago politicians, including Mayor Rahm Emmanuel. Samuel wants to pursue politics to advance causes he believes in, like improving education. Samuel believes that the internship taught him the importance of being on time, being focused, and being organized, skills that carry over to school, and his chosen field. He credits the CSBI internship with teaching him how to speak up for himself and to advocate for the issues he believes in. In the little downtime Samuel has, he likes to play video games and workout.
