Jovan lives in Pennsylvania’s Delaware County, right outside Philadelphia.  He grew up in the state of Delaware and attended Cab Calloway High School, a school for the performing arts.

On his way home from school one afternoon, he was asked by a police officer to get off the bus because he fit the description of a purse thief.

His story of being judged by what he was wearing is echoed in many other interviews coming up, and is worth listening to in its entirety.
