About Jemar:

jemarheadshot-2

I was born and nurtured in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I am a junior at Prairie High School and currently attend three schools – my Mothership (Prairie High School), Kirkwood Community College where attending I take college courses, and Iowa BIG. For those of you who don’t know, Iowa BIG is project-based learning that makes learners into makers, designers, storytellers, and social entrepreneurs with exposure and interactions with Organizations, Business partners, Government agencies and the community.

I am a firm advocate of “re-imagining” how the education system is at this point and time while spreading the importance of learner-centered education. I also enjoy sharing my story through my educational journey and the hurdles I’ve overcome. I believe every student should have many styles of learning available to them since every human and learner is unique in their own ways. I am working in many ways to make this happen, even more than it is in my community and nation.

I am involved in many activities ranging from, BPA (Business Professionals of America), to MVP (Mentors in Violence Protection), a mentor at the LBA Foundation (Leaders Believers Achiever) and being the Co-Creator of EdRevision. With doing all these things, I am ultimately trying to transform myself and community for the better.

Besides my professional life, I love living my life to the fullest. I am always looking for new adventures and experiences. I love to spend time with my friends & family; especially my nieces and nephews.  I enjoy to bike, snowboard, going on adventures with my friends, and meeting new people!
