Sharefest is proud to recognize and celebrate this year's Youth Hero Award honoree, Nnamdi Asomugha. Throughout his prestigious NFL career, Nnamdi has consistently used his platform to empower underprivileged youth and help position them for promising futures. Through his organization, the Asomugha Foundation, he has championed giving back to others through community service. His program ACTS (Asomugha College Tour for Scholars) is an embodiment of that ideal, and has assisted over 180 high-achieving students from underserved communities with college access, mentorship, and scholarships.
Nnamdi stands apart as a community leader who meets the criteria of The Sharefest Youth Hero award: he is selfless in giving his talents and influence to make others better; he has created community efforts that instill hope and strength in the lives of vulnerable youth; and he is a model of the highest level of commitment and concern to see others reach their greatest potential.
