Akeem Morgan

My name Is Akeem Jamel Morgan. I was born in Brooklyn, New York. During my childhood, my interest mostly was involved around basketball and video games with my favorite game series is the NBA 2K series. Fun fact, I still have my first ever NBA 2K game which is NBA 2K2. At the age of 19, I started working for various summer camps and after schools. I graduated with an associates in science at the State University of New York at Delhi. In 2016, I started working at Kids In The Game and since then I have had the opportunities to be apart of the coach across American program with Up2Us Sports, a Americorp member, a head coach of Corpus Christi Basketball Team, and now apart of Kids In The Game Esports Program. Being an NASEF Scholastic Fellow is another opportunity presented to me by Kids In The Game.

Why did you become a NASEF Scholastic Fellow?

I chose to become a NASEF Scholastic Fellow because I wanted to expand my experience and learn from other educators about connecting Esports and academic goals together.
