About Our Founder
Mawi Asgedom founded Mawi Learning because he saw firsthand how SEL can help a student grow in confidence, academic achievement, and extracurricular success.
Mawi Asgedom arrived in the U.S. as a refugee from Ethiopia and faced many challenges including poverty and language barriers. After receiving mentoring that taught him SEL principles such as goal setting, Mawi went on a remarkable growth journey that resulted in a scholarship to Harvard University, where Mawi delivered the commencement speech to 30,000 Harvard graduates.
Mawi is the founder of Mawi Learning, a bestselling author, and a frequent keynoter at leading education conferences. He has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and in leading media such as NPR, ESSENCE, and The Chicago Tribune.
