Cool Kid helps others near and far

Sammy Williams is a Cool Kid who gives back in many ways. This summer she enlightens kids as a volunteer at the California Science Center."When you actually get to tell them things that apply to their life like, 'have you swim in the ocean? These things are in there with you.' They just get so excited," said Williams.

Since 2006, Williams has taken relief supplies and caring to orphans in Liberia. As much as she gives to them, she is most grateful for what she gets back.

"I love it there and I love the people there, they're so loving. We go there thinking we're going to help these people. But, really, we learn way more from them," said Williams.

She is doing so much at such a young age, but people can see that she has the qualities to do it all.

"She's very motivated. She has many goals and she's very determined to make her goals come true, her dreams come true," said exhibit coordinator Juanita Juarez.

Her time in Africa has influenced her future plans and once again it is about assisting many people.

"I want to research HIV/AIDS, or malaria, or something like that. Just use the knowledge I'll obtain to help others and help people in like in Liberia where I work," said Williams.

With intelligence and drive to learn and a caring heart to help, Sammy Williams is our Cool Kid.
