Shawn Johnson

Shawn's personal journey as a first-generation college graduate has led him to be inspired by social entrepreneurship. His experiences taught him the value of access to resources, particularly stable housing, in overcoming challenges. Moreover, his path to military service and his academic background has helped shape his service and leadership skills. In 2023, Shawn founded Liya's House, an organization that aims to provide housing support to specialized populations, rather than just addressing immediate need, he envisions a place that offers a life-changing experience centered around compassion and support that empowers individuals to rebuild trust in their communities.
