Cassim stresses power of knowledge to WHS students
While a student at Woodbury High School, Shezanne “Shez” Cassim, was bright, but considered himself somewhat of a slacker.
However, when the 29-year-old Woodbury resident found himself locked in a maximum security prison in the United Arab Emirates for nine months, he realized just how valuable learning and knowledge was.
“We smuggled in a math textbook,” he said. “I was so hungry for information that I wanted to do math.
“My brain was just deteriorating.”
