What Our Higher Ed Partners are Saying

I was deeply moved by your performance, as well as your life story. I cannot remember a time I was so captivated by a presenter. The stories of our people are left untold, leaving us wondering through life trying to find our identity. Please continue your great work for all students.

Your presentation to us was absolutely fabulous and moving. I’m most often a hard-sell at events like this, but I felt very inspired by your talk.

Hasan’s book, Written Off: How One Man’s Journey through Poverty, Disability and Delinquency is Transforming the Juvenile Justice System was well-received by my students in a Sociology course on Juvenile Delinquency; several students said it was their favorite book of the term. Hasan’s visits to my class were also a gift – his knowledge of the justice system coupled with his passion for creating change and an ability to reach students transformed the classroom.
