Philadelphia Inquirer Profiles Inspiring MHS Alumnus

Featuring Kayvon Asemani ’14

Musician, speaker, influencer, entrepreneur, and mentor—there’s no doubt Kayvon Asemani ’14 is living his best life. His titles showcase his many talents, but at his core it’s resilience that makes his story one of a kind.

Asemani arrived at MHS in fifth grade, not long after a family tragedy. When he was just 9 years old, Kayvon’s father attempted to murder Kayvon’s mother in their family apartment. Kayvon’s mother was left severely brain-damaged and his father was sent to prison.

At MHS, Kayvon found a home, developing relationships and seizing on opportunities that would shape his future.

In a special feature in The Philadelphia Inquirer, writer Kevin Riordan chronicles Kayvon’s inspiring journey that’s led him to a purpose-driven life of service, a budding career, and endless possibilities.
