I ran across an article earlier this year about Quamiir. I was inspired by his story and the way that he is dedicated to being an example to other African-American young men in his home town of Philadelphia.
Quamiir, an educator, once hated school and turned to the streets of North Philly. He eventually went to attend and graduate from Howard University, met and worked with President Obama, and now teaching a few minutes away from the school he once attended.
Quamiir's story inspires me, and am excited to sit down with him later this year.
