Originally from Fresno, CA, Keon is a freshman student studying Business Administration at the Marshall School of and. Additionally, he’s currently pursuing a minor in Political Science, and is a member of USC’s Unruh Institute. Diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome at a young age, he’s studied the condition in detail and outlines its effects, digressing to identify a larger problem faced by society. With a passion for writing and background in public speaking and debate, Keon hopes to use the TEDx platform in an effort to reach a broad audience, and explore an issue that otherwise hasn’t been discussed.
