Introducing Sam Peters | Slam Master Candidate
Sam Peters is a nonbinary poet, settler, and student. Sam has worked as a volunteer coordinator, first aid attendant, and restaurant manager, but they are most proud of their work as a facilitator for Qmunity and the Youth Excellence Society. You may also recognize them as a Vanslam and Verses Festival of Words volunteer, Vanslam host, 2019 New Sh!t Champion, and 2019 Vanslam Team member.
