Samantha’s interest in mediation is rooted in her love for people. Having served in a youth grassroots organisation since 2011, Samantha remains an active mentor to its youth volunteers where she has been inspiring them to choose identities rooted in peace. She firmly believes that the youth should be empowered to be peacemakers, for they are not only the global leaders of tomorrow but the sparks of change today.
