Rutgers Graduate Assistant and Founder, Them Cloud Kids
Even after living in multiple other cities, Shane was drawn back to Newark. While working as a graduate assistant at Rutgers University pursuing a degree in public administration, he also runs the organization he founded entitled Them Cloud Kids. The group teaches a South African philosophy known as Ubuntu, which means “I am who I am because of who we all are.” The goal is for college students to pass their knowledge onto younger generations by teaching the youth of Newark how to have positive, compassionate interactions with others.
