I never thought of myself as an engineer. Not really. Sure I was good a fixing machines, I programmed computers and made straight A's in math and science. But, me an engineer? No...
That's how I thought at the crucial pre-teen and teen years because I had no role models or anyone to tell me that it was possible. And, no one that looked like me were engineers. In the 30 years that I've been in my career, there are still so few venues to Black and Brown people to understand STEM fields and participate in STEM opportunities. That has to change.
My team and I along with our partners at Urbanime are on a mission to create a movement that any person, child, teen or adult with the potential to create worlds, make the world a better place or inspire others with their creativity. And, we know that the original hacking culture of Hip Hop is the perfect mix to encourage Black and Brown youth and adults to take the leap into a new world that will change their lives for the better forever.
