My name is Samer Bawab. I am a 1st Generation born American who is half Hungarian and half Lebanese. My parents met in Paris, France in a small cafe’ when my father was travelling abroad while studying at Pharmacy School at Ohio Northern in Ada, OH, and my Mom was with a group of her high school friends. They instantly fell in love and after my dad finished his education, he moved himself and my Mom to Cleveland, OH.

I spent most of my life in a greater Cleveland area suburb called Pepper Pike, where I grew up with my (fraternal) twin brother Leroy and older brother Omar. After I graduated from Orange High school in 2006, I spent a year at Cleveland State University studying Political Science and eventually transferring to Ohio University in Athens, OH in 2008. There I studied Marketing in the College of Business and met some amazing people and learned a ton. I have never seen myself as average and I am always pushing myself each day to become a great person.

Some additional cool facts about me are that I speak fluent Hungarian, I’m left handed, and I have a huge obsession for dogs :)
