Maty Sam

is a fellow at Rise and attends Temple University in Philadelphia as a political science major on a pre-law track. Maty chooses to work with Rise because they see problems in their community that Rise focuses on and they want to be a part of that. They believe that politics is a very important topic right now and that we need more young adults to become more aware because it’s their futures at risk. The only way to do that is to teach youth about our political system if we want change, and Rise is the best place to do that.
