The Asomugha Foundation:
Nnamdi Asomugha is an actor, producer, philanthropist and former All-Pro NFL Player. Following a successful 11 years career in the NFL, Asomugha channeled his passion for film and television into a career in the entertainment industry.
In 2015, he founded iAm21 Entertainment (www.iAm21.com), a production company whose mission is to create entertainment that illuminates important social issues and influences social change.
Prior to his work in the entertainment industry, Asomugha was a highly successful professional football player, who spent 11 seasons in the NFL. He was considered one of the best defensive players in the league, receiving multiple All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections over the course of his career.
Asomugha has consistently used his platform to enact positive change in the community, and with his family established The Asomugha Foundation in 2010, a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to positively impact disadvantaged youth in the U.S.A. and underprivileged orphans and widows in Africa through education and empowerment. As part of the foundation, Asomugha established ACTS (Asomugha College Tour for Scholars) a mentorship program through which he annually takes a group of high-achieving High School students from underprivileged communities on a week-long trip to a different US city, to visit local colleges and universities. He has been honored for his philanthropic work with the NFL Players Association’s Man of the Year Award, The Jefferson Award for Public Service, and the President’s Volunteer Service Award, to name a few. He is also a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Finance.
