Our Director of campus, Antonio Neves is all about helping college students excel on and off campus. He’s an award-winning journalist, author and nationally recognized college leadership speaker. A first generation college student, Antonio knows first hand that for students it’s not just about the quest for a diploma. It’s not just about getting a job. No, it’s about the journey to create life with meaning.
We invite you to help bring Antonio Neves to SXSWEdu to deliver a powerful talk that celebrates, empowers and supports college students to share their rich stories. SXSWEdu is the education focused conference at SXSW, an annual festival in Austin, Texas that showcases original music, independent films, and promising new technology.
Now through September 4, you’ll have the opportunity to help us bring Antonio to SXSWEdu. Community voting accounts for 30% of the decision-making process for SXSWEdu, so it’s important that if you believe Antonio would be a great speaker next year, (and we certainly do!) go out and vote to show your support.
