Kameron Smith joined the SVA team in June 2019 and continues to serve as a data operator in the research department. Since joining the research department in 2019, he has contributed to projects such as the SVA Census and the Student Veteran Life Cycle Atlas, which has been a high priority project for SVA. Prior to joining SVA, he served in the United States Air Force for seven years, both overseas and stateside.
He was an Aircraft Armament craftsman, supporting special operations in Afghanistan and other overseas contingency operations. While on active duty, he was an avid advocate of pursuing higher education and would challenge fellow Airmen to take classes with him to introduce them back to school. As a current student veteran, he brings to the research department an ability to be a source of information on student veteran related issues.
Using this ability to the advantage of SVA, he has been able to contribute to large scale projects such as SVA’s largest annual conference NATCON 2020. Concurrently, he is a senior at American University in Washington D.C. He is majoring in journalism and minoring in art history. His passion for photography blends with his passion to become a voice of those who are marginalized in hope to tell the stories that are often overlooked.Download Bio
