Sahaan Sozhamannan is originally from Baltimore, Maryland. He completed his undergraduate education at Boston College, where he majored in both Biology and Sociology. During his junior year at BC, he volunteered as a tutor and teacher’s aide at a local high school originally as a part of a service learning requirement for class. However, after just one semester he quickly fell in love with education and continued working there until graduation. Afterwards, he spent the next three years teaching science and coaching baseball at Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
Despite loving being in the classroom, he found a new passion for health education in urban school settings. He has most recently completed his coursework for a Master’s of Science in Public Health in Health Education and Health Communication with a focus in Adolescent Health from Johns Hopkins. During this time, he also worked on an evaluation team for a school-based violence prevention program created by the Baltimore City Health Department. Outside of school and work, he enjoys cooking and playing basketball.
