Sam is not a daddy’s boy when it comes to his profession. Well, this 25 year old gentleman is all set to escape his father’s shadow. Richard Branson’s son Sam Branson does not seem to have any genuine interest in following his father’s footsteps. Rather, he wants to make it big in the environmental activities.

He reveals that he want to make documentaries about global issues like climate change, that too in a young, funky and cool way so audiences can relate to them. He stated that he always wanted to do something of his own, and carve a niche of his own.

Sam Branson setup a production company in 2009 called Current Sponge, following three inspiring trips to the Arctic region.

These trips provided him an opportunity to see the world in a new way and made him believe that he could do anything, he explains.

His company, in his words, is designed to “inspire people by delivering powerful messages via imaginative formats and concepts.”

Well, the fact that he is interested in making a difference for the planet, might be the only interest he shares with his billionaire dad.

On the flip side, more and more youngsters with strong passion for nature and determination are plunging into environmental activities and that is definitely praiseworthy.

People, like Junior Branson, with deep pockets, could possibly influence other people of the elite class.
