Shawon is an Illinois Math and Science Academy alumni who is deeply passionate about social justice and education. Some of his hobbies include dancing (Hip-Hop, Bachata, and Merengue Salsa), chatting with friends, and reading. Shawon has started an education non-profit for undervalued high school kids to have an opportunity to advocate for social justice, and while doing this he realized that education holds a lot of power. Shawon emphasizes that it is important for youth to raise awareness for others and to speak up about the real world to make a difference. While at IMSA, Shawon was heavily involved in leadership and he still is today. He has centered his work around marginalized groups, such as the Latinx community. We are so excited to hear Shawon’s Tedx Talk and we hope you are too!
