De’Iveyon Griffin is a 12th year student at Mastery Charter Schools’ Pickett Campus.

Growing up without his father, De’Iveyon had to strive in school while helping his mother at home. He was accepted to East Stroudsburg University but has decided to attend community college to stay close to his mother. He wants to be the first one in his family to bring home a college degree.

He plans to help pay for his college using a business he came up with with his close friend. He calls it “eine Liebe”, it stands for “one love”.  He recently lost a friend to gun violence. De’Iveyon wants to promote love in his community.

He used his skills in graphic design by creating ideas on different shirts. He wishes to continue to use his skills with Photoshop in college. He even wants to try photography and better his graphic design skills so he can create cover art for his friend who is a rapper.
