Reddit co-founder visits Richmond after-school program


Alexis Ohanian Sr., co-founder of social media website Reddit and husband of tennis great Serena Williams, visited an after-school program in Richmond on Tuesday to inspire middle school students, according to a report by KTVU (Ch. 2).

Ohanian, 35, and four colleagues visited the After School All Stars program at Richmond College Prep Charter School “to pass along the lessons they’ve learned in business and in life to help the next generation become successful leaders,” the television news station reported.

Ohanian said he wanted to give the students “perspective on how we made it and how they can too,” and encouraged them to begin learning to code now.

The young students asked questions, and one 12-year-old even asked and received Ohanian’s email address, as the boy has a special project he may need help with.
