Hisham Ali Bob remembers the passion his best teachers brought to their classrooms and now he brings that passion to the students of East Oakland. His job is to increase the young TNT leaders’ awareness of the impact of violence in their lives and communities, the value of their life experiences, and their own power to bring greater peace to Oakland. He says he often recognizes his younger self in the TNT participants, and that this helps him relate to them and them to him.

Hisham grew up in the East Bay, graduated from University of California, Davis, with a B.A. in Economics, and has worked as a youth basketball coach and a tutor.
