Samuel Tesfai

Job title: 
AAI/EOP Peer Academic Counselor

My name is Samuel Tesfai (he/him/his). I’m from San Diego and I’m one of the peer academic counselors for the African American Initiative Program and EOP. I’m a 4th year student, with a major in Data Science. When I first came to Berkeley, I had no idea what I was doing, so I can understand if anybody experiences a rough start to college. Luckily, I managed to figure it out and I'm confident that I’m headed on the right path now. What makes me so excited about being a peer academic counselor for AAI is getting the chance to meet the new incoming Black freshmen and getting the chance to help jumpstart their academic careers. Also, a fun fact about me, I’m a huge NBA fan and love to have debates about it. Feel free to talk to me about counseling or anything else.
