Samsir Eka Putra
Interests: Photography and volunteering
Samsir Putra, a self-described friendly and social person, studies Communication at Parkland College. As an Indonesian student who is active in a few student clubs like Latino Club and Muslim Students Association, he likes to hang out at the College Center and Student Government Office. He said that he wants to be one of Parkland’s student senators as well.
Besides being a student, Samsir has three jobs. One of them is as an officer for Parkland’s Language Lab. He enjoys photography and volunteering. “My dream career is a journalist and professional photographer,” he said. If there is a young man in a hat with a camera on his neck capturing some events at Parkland, that’s likely to be him.
Samsir loves studying at Parkland College; he said that it’s fun, has flexible timing, and that the teachers are very knowledgeable. Parkland also offers many events and has a homey atmosphere, he said. He gained a lot of new experiences at Parkland by working at the radio station, WPCD. He also has made a lot of new friends.
When he finishes studying at Parkland, Samsir wants to work in any TV or radio station. That is why he is taking Communication as his major, not just because it is his favorite subject, but also because he feels it is going to be easy for him to find a job in the future.
