Iota Profile #6: Man of Steel

with one comment


Editor’s Note: Here is a brother who I caught wind of through Facebook and added him as a friend.  And I haven’t regretted it since, as his statuses are full of inspirational and motivational quotes and workout tips.  As the first brother to be featured from the West Coast, you may have also seen him on such programs as America’s Next Top Model, stepping front and center with the Angel City Outlawz.  One of the most visible members of the I-PhiT National Initiative, he is also a Herbalife representative, health coach and actor, continuing today’s trend of multitasking Iotas.

Folks, get pumped for Sasky Sengapon.


Please introduce yourself to the readers.

 Sasky Sengapon, ACE CLUB, FALL 1998 San Diego State Colony Chapter. California State University, Long Beach.  Undergrad: Gamma Phi, Grad Chapter: Gamma Gamma Omega, Charter member 2011. 

What drew your interest to Iota Phi Theta?

What drew me to Iota was a bond between men who were genuine, honest, real, kind, intelligent, trustworthy and loyal.  I was introduced to Iota as a freshman at Tennessee State University in 1995, at the time Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. wasn’t on campus or even heard of before.  Until Milton Mighty, a brother from Central Missouri State by way of Chicago, had just transferred in and happened to room with me by accident. As my roommate, he showed a young freshman the ropes, taught me how to get around, [and helped me with] registration and other university red tape.  He embraced me with the spirit of brotherhood and treated me as I was his BROTHER.  I went through the year NOT knowing he was a member of Iota, and when I did find out.  I was ready to help get Iota started on the map, but unfortunately there weren’t that many brothers in the area and the nearest chapter was 4 hours away.  So I transferred around to a couple of schools and ended up back home in 1998 attending San Diego State University, ran into my Dean, Brother Cleo Thurmond and my [line brother] Damon Renthrope, and the rest is history.

What is your current job title/business, and why are you in that field?

Current job(s) now, I am an Herbalife Member, a HEALTH COACH and an Actor.  I am a Health Coach because I love people and love to help others become the best versions of themselves.  By teaching proper nutrition and exercise, I teach [people] to live an active healthy lifestyle, so they can be healthy for life.  As an actor, it’s my passion; my love for theatre and storytelling is what I LOVE. 

Please name one aspiration you hope to accomplish in the next 20 years?

I want to inspire any and everyone to take charge of their lives, make a change in their current status in life if they are not happy with their health, their job, or current situation to go out and achieve their dreams. And CHANGE their mindset.  It’s all possible with faith, love, trust, determination, consistency and a strong desire to succeed.  I also want to hit the big screen within the next 5 years as an action movie star, setting new trends of action movie heroes.

How has Iota helped you in your endeavors, personal or professional?

Iota has helped me learn how to be mindful, patient, observant and multi-faceted. Iota has taught me how to network with a professional mindset and handle pressure in all areas of my life.

What would you say to anyone considering membership in Iota Phi Theta/Iota Sweethearts?

To anyone considering membership, I would suggest they know who they are mentally, spiritually, and physically.  Because if you don’t know yourself and what your limitations are as an individual, how are you going to add your spice, your personality and leave a legacy in this organization.  Most importantly, never lose yourself and try to conform to what others expect you to become.  Stay true to who you are, and your light will shine.  Put everything you’ve got into everything you do.
