Ahmed Salimon

Ahmed Salimon was raised in Silver Spring, Maryland in a single parent household and is the younger of two children. Ahmed graduated from Morehouse College in 2013 with a B.A. degree in Sociology and is now pursuing his MSW at The Catholic University of America.  “The Pope Francis Scholarship seemed to find me in a time of self-reflection and searching. I was praying for a way to heal and a path that would help me suture the deep lacerations of inequality and poverty in my community. I hope to be able to live in the service of others, using the education and experienced gained through this experience to uplift and inspire those who have not.”
