Currently a college student, Dejon plans to continue his college education, as he is working on receiving a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and going on to work on receiving a Masters and Doctorate in Divinity. In addition to being involved in theatre, film, and politics, Dejon is also a licensed minister and serves as the Youth & Young Adult Minister at his church.
When asked why he chose to do this show being a Minister, Dejon said
“this show deals with universal topics that a lot of teenagers in today’s society are dealing with, and to be able to be in this type of show that puts it right in front you, is a great thing; this show can be the beginning of a dialogue of how we can prevent some of the things these teens in this show are struggling with.”
