A man’s love for family is a powerful driving force in the pursuit of success, especially for a man raised by a single mother with two children. Samuel Smith is an actor and mindfulness and meditation instructor born in Miami, Florida and currently residing in New York, New York City. This rising star is determined to become successful in entertainment to give his mother a better life she deserves.
This actor graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts from Alabama State University and with a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Theater Arts from Brandeis University in Massachusetts. He takes pride in his skill, hard work, and exemplary work ethic, which he attributes to his undergrad professor, Dr. Tommie Stewart.
Theater did not always have the funds they required to hire the help they needed for their shows. Still, Dr. Stewart had instilled the value of resourcefulness and drove her students to get the job done, even if it meant doing things themselves. As a result, her students learned everything there is to the theater and developed valuable skills that brought one student, in particular, to success.
With an impressive resume, Samuel Smith can already be considered a successful man. His most recent acting stint was as 6 and 8 in Godfather of Harlem and as the priest in the movie titled See You Yesterday. He was also a recurring guest star in Shades of Blue on NBC, House of Cards, and Daredevil, among a long list of shows. In addition to that, he also has an extensive list of commercials.
Besides his activities as an actor, he is also an entrepreneur, with a few lines, including Samuel Leon Leather, Better Than Perfect Athletics, and the upcoming Samuel Leon’s Men’s Suits. He acknowledges the importance of creating opportunities to achieve financial freedom for himself and his family.
Besides all the abovementioned, Samuel Smith is a Mindfulness and Meditation Instructor in the NYC public school system and one of the lead mentors for My Brother’s Keeper Men’s Group in Brooklyn, NY District 19. This commitment to empowering youth and creating avenues for their personal growth comes from his experience in the New York school system, which demonstrated an alarming lack of student empowerment.
With his extensive list of achievements, he already is a figure to be admired in the eyes of those who know him. Still, as a former athlete, he is extremely competitive and has an endless desire for growth. He continues to seek opportunities to better himself in acting, mentoring, and entrepreneurship.
It is in the practice of mindfulness he promotes that he can achieve all these things. Mindfulness brings clarity of vision, and clarity of vision brings purpose and a path to the ultimate goal. He sees himself eventually taking his place among the elite of the acting and entertainment industry and gaining the fulfillment of introducing many people to the practice of mindfulness to promote mental health. He also hopes to expand and grow his businesses through partnerships with people with more significant experience who can become his mentors.
