The road to becoming an author: Albert Samaha's #MySJStory

During his time at Mira Loma High School Albert Samaha fell in love with writing.


He went on to become an investigative reporter for BuzzFeed and recently became a published author for his work Never Ran, Never Will: Boyhood and Football in a Changing American Inner City. During his book tour, he visited his alma mater where he met with former teacher, shared his story with students and answered questions about his book.
