Almost half (40%) of Black women drop out of STEM majors by their sophomore year. Black women have grit and ability. But we struggle at every stage of the STEM pipeline. It’s not due to lack of desire, or capacity, but a lack of support.
To distill this large societal issue into a feasible solution she created Black Sisters in STEM (Black SiS)

We deliver culturally relevant content designed specifically for Black women, from job interview strategies to professional styles for natural hair.
We curate internship and job opportunities in partnership with tech companies
''A new world is on the horizon. My vision is to economically empower young Black women for the subsequent reinvestment into the socio-economic improvement of communities. As a result of improving the overall economic productivity of Black women we can produce political freedom for women, improve the development outcomes for the next generation of women and make institutions and policies more representative.''
