Sam The ‘Dancing Barista’ With Autism Meets Ellen, Then His Wildest Dream Comes True

Sam the Dancing Barista on ellen

If you haven’t heard of the Dancing Barista yet, prepare to be inspired.┬áLess than a year ago, Sam was in the fight of his life against his Autism. He wanted more than anything to work and live like other people, but nobody would give him the chance.

The disorder caused several employers to turn him down, then one Starbucks manager saw Sam for who he was, a beautiful and dedicated human being.

“In that moment, my life changed… my whole world changed,” Sam told Ellen.

Sam learned to cope with his Autism by dancing his way through every shift at his local Starbucks. The dance moves help him to focus on orders and customers. A patron took this video of Sam and his beautiful spirit, and the rest is history.

The interview is just another example of how Ellen brings out the best in humanity, highlighting the people behind things that inspire and make you smile. Per usual, the moment she reveals the big surprise at the end made me want to jump for joy right along with Sam, the Dancing Barista.
