Kadeem Swenson, a 19-year-old gay man, is far more interested in talking about his future than he is about his past.
Last week, at the Blade’s request, Swenson talked about what his activist friends and city officials are calling an extraordinary journey over the past two years from his status as a homeless youth to his current role as a college student and intern in the office of D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray.
“There are still good people in the world,” he said, when asked what lessons he learned from his recent experiences.
Swenson is taking summer courses at the Community College of the University of the District of Columbia. He will begin a full-time class schedule at the community college as a freshman in September.
