SILVER SPRING, Md. - Nick Jonas was in town Tuesday night rocking the Fillmore in Silver Spring! He first broke onto the scene with the Jonas Brothers and now has a successful solo singing career and is establishing himself as an actor.
Before he hit the stage, FOX 5’s Allison Seymour spoke to him about his work to support 'Think It Up,' an education initiative that is near and dear to his heart.
'Think It Up' is a student-powered project that supports learning projects in classrooms across the country.
Jonas, who was homeschooled and whose mother was a teacher, is a major supporter of the project that encourages people to recognize the importance of education and support success in the classroom.
"The reason I was so thrilled and excited to get involved is because there's an enormous opportunity for me in the position I’m in with some of the fans that are still in school - to inspire them to get aggressive about what they want to see happen with their lives and their education," Jonas said.
As for his dreams as a child, Jonas said they were big. Along with music, he said he dreamt of being president one day – a job that he still would take a crack at…maybe, that is!
"I feel like the responsibility I feel is less than being a role model and more in just doing what I can to help inspire young people in a way that a lot of people inspired me," he said.
