As our Student Experience Associate Intern, Mayed supports the Today’s Student Experience Lab, a Lumina Foundation-funded initiative to infuse the lived experiences of today’s students into the work of designing relevant and informed futures of education beyond high school. With research interests focusing on abolition studies, carceral technologies, and educational justice, Mayed is currently pursuing his MS Engineering Design Innovation at Northwestern University.
His point of view on education: “I dream of a future where education sets us free. I envision a world where we are no longer bound by false truths. I imagine an education that recognizes our humanity and celebrates our community. I see us as unbound and liberated.”
