This is Sam Stanley
Professional actor, singer and dancer, Sam Stanley, became the first SelectSpecs Fashion Ambassador. It was an absolute pleasure to work with and be around this talented young man! We spotted him by hashtagging on Instagram and we knew that we wanted to have him as a face of our brand.
I have always wanted to be a dancer all my life. I used to watch music channels for hours and hours and watch the dancers and I wished that one day that would be me. I started dancing at about 14. It was the first time I felt like me and I started to feel comfortable with myself. I found out who I wanted to be. I then somehow managed to get a scholarship to dance college. My dream was to get into dance college and just experience what it would be like. I was raised on a council estate and could never have gone with out a scholarship. I never imagined in my life I would get the chance to go. I remember crying my eyes out when I found out. It was the best day of my life. I then went on to learn my craft at college to graduate in 2010. It was the hardest but best years of my life . Finding out who I was and what I wanted to do with my life. Since graduating I have worked in the industry doing various different jobs. It’s always a struggle and never plain sailing but when you have a passion for something you take what ever life will throw at you. I have been blessed with the most amazing family and the gift of doing what I love every day.
