Empty Your Backpack

In Empty Your Backpack, Sam reminds you that people’s words don’t define your worth. Over the past few months, Sam quietly worked with Ben Clarkson (Juno-nominated illustrator, artist and animator) to bring to life a poem that speaks to youth mental health, anti-bullying and positive self-esteem.

Keep Chasing Your Dreams

Everyone attaches their self-worth to something.  For Sam it was soccer.  This video was created to remind your students that their current situations do not reflect their future destinations.

“It’s okay to change.  It’s okay to wake up one day and walk a new path.  Sometimes in life, your dreams change. What’s important is that you have the courage to continue chasing them.”

Dear Class of 2021

The class of 2021 missed so many milestones, including graduation.  This video was created to celebrate the graduating class of 2021 and remind them that their stories are just beginning.

“This is your beginning.  Look ahead, in front of you and see the future you wanna create, and glance back behind you, knowing that although things didn’t go as planned, you’re the only person who can write your future, and the pen is resting in your two hands.”

Small Consistent Actions

What if everything you have ever learnt about change and social impact were totally wrong? In grade 12 Sam Demma had a high school teacher who convinced him that change and impact was not the result of massive shifts, but instead the outcome of committing to Small Consistent Actions.

“What is stopping you from being the next person that my teacher writes on his blackboard?  We can all play our part in making a difference.  One Small, Consistent Actions at a time.”

Dear Class of 2020

The class of 2020 missed so many milestones, including graduation.  This video was created to celebrate the graduating class of 2020 and remind them that their hard work had not gone unnoticed.
