#GeniusRevealed KEVIN BUTLER, OAK4

For Kevin Butler, OAK4 Hidden Genius alum, brotherhood is at the core of his experience as a Genius. In sharing what makes The Hidden Genius Project unique, Kevin says, “It’s definitely that sense of brotherhood, just being connected with my brothers in that special way. It’s not like other programs or like anything I’ve ever experienced.”

Kevin, an 18-year-old graduate of Oakland’s Conservatory of Vocal and Instrumental Arts High School (COVAH), recently completed his freshman year at Merritt College in Oakland. Though he is musically inclined, Kevin decided that for now, he’ll keep that aspect of his life as a hobby while he turns his full attention to Computer Science, which is his major at Merritt. He’s not yet certain what precise career he’ll pursue, but he’s sure that it will be in information technology (IT) or any technology field; The Hidden Genius Project has been instrumental in supporting Kevin to get to this point.

When I'm not watching anime, playing video games, or listening to music, I do my best to add value to people's lives.

I enjoy having a career where I can create equity in my community. I achieve this by sharing knowledge and offering my services to those looking for support with projects.
