On the final episode of season 1 we sit down for an incredible conversation with Jason Wang.
Jason shares openly about growing up in poverty, in a neighbourhood where he was exposed to drugs and violence from a very young age. He shares about being subjected to abuse as a child, and about the impact that all of these things had on his life and trajectory. It's easy to see how the result of it all was an aggravated robbery charge that left 15 year old Jason with a 12 year prison sentence.
What is so remarkable about Jason and his story is his resilience and determination throughout his life. Ultimately, this has led him to become entrepreneur in residence for Schmidt Futures. He has created and leads Freeworld, an organization with a mission of bringing high wage careers to millions of returning citizens across America so they can live fulfilling positive lives, prison-free.
