Kevin was a sophomore in high school when he joined Stoked through our partner at Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA)! The very first time he saw snow was on a Snow Mentor trip to Snow Summit. Back then we matched him up with an awesome and dedicated mentor named Brad and the two hit it off. Armed with charm & humor, the pair loved hitting the terrain park while snowboarding and surfing Santa Monica beach. Although a very good student, Kevin admittedly lacked the confidence to start applying to colleges. His mentor helped him out with that. HOLA provided the tools to get in and Stoked supported him through teaching him life skills and with the support of his great mentor. He got into some great universities but ended up at University of Wisconsin Madison where he is a freshman. He and Brad are still in contact and continue to have a thriving mentoring relationship despite Kevin being in college. Kevin is on a spring break road trip with friends visiting different states and he decided to visit New York and say hi to Stoked NYC. We’re so proud of all his accomplishments and we look forward to great things from him in the future.
