Alyze Sam is a refreshing blockchain strategist, a novel educator, and vehemently driven advocate. Early in life, Sam knew she wanted to be a light to the lost, just like her Great Grandma. Her grandmother, a hospital trained nurse humbly referred to herself as “a servant to those in need”. Through academic scholarships, Alyze completed her undergrad in chemistry. Now that she is well versed in science jokes, she laughs and claims the years of study were so you could joyfully rave about her ‘farm to table’ home cooked ‘food chemistry’ creations. She successfully fulfilled her destiny in her early 20’s by becoming the servant she had always dreamed, proudly being defined by her career as a hospice nurse. After 10 years of devoting her life to those crossing over, a life altering accident and newly found illness was the catalyst that forced Sam to branch outside of her comfort zone and learn financial technology. Starting off as an early cryptocurrency investor, Alyze quickly became an active crypto trader, then GPU/ASIC miner. Hungry to advance further, she asked and received training by Blockchain industry leaders and fervently studied the underlying technology. Alyze now humbly sits as an influencer at the top 1% of the blockchain industry. As an active Woman in Blockchain, she continues her lifelong desires to be a servant, supporting her “sister’s” and other women in technology by means of content, speaking, advocacy events and advising. Sam enjoys being the “underdog“ and takes the word “no“, as a personal challenge. From losing 250 pounds to pushing herself into remission, this driven Kansas girl excels at all she does and brings life to all her endeavors.
