Hemant Mehta is currently the Chair of the Secular Student Alliance (SSA) Board of Directors.
He attended the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he graduated with honors in both Mathematics and Biology. While there, he also helped establish their first secular student group, Students WithOut Religious Dogma (SWORD). Finishing its fifth year of existence, SWORD has brought speakers such as Dan Barker and Michael Newdow to the student population and has become a haven for atheists and agnostics alike.
Currently, he is earning his Masters in Math Education at DePaul University.
He has worked with the Center for Inquiry and is currently an SSA representative to the Secular Coalition for America.
More recently, Hemant received national attention, including being featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, for his work as the “eBay Atheist.”
His book “I Sold My Soul on eBay” (WaterBrook Press) will be released in April 2007.
