Build Me Up Podcast
Sam Ebute and the Power of Resilience
Sam Ebute is the director of the MN Trades Academy, a paid internship experience for high schoolers to expose them to career pathways in construction. But his own journey to the industry did not follow a traditional path. In this special episode, guest host and KA’s Director of Inclusion and Diversity Laurie Trousil sat down with Sam to learn more about his early life in Nigeria, the culture shock of moving to Menomonie, Wisconsin, and the events in his life that led him to mentoring Twin Cities youth. His story of courage, resilience and compassion built from adversity, is a timely and inspiring message for all of us.
