Mario De Leon

Mario De Leon loves math. He was born and raised in Guatemala until the age of 9, and has lived in Los Angeles as an undocumented immigrant ever since. Mario believes that math is beautiful and that we are simply out of love with math due to modern formal education systems, colonialism, and capitalism. Mario believes in the power of math and science in the hands of the working class to radically reimagine what math education can look like for the benefit of all beings. When he’s not contemplating the meaning of life, Mario likes to hang out with his cat, Pi.
