In a world moved and shaped by Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, it has become necessary to train and educate people to better equip them to contribute to society. More and more women are gradually taking their place in this movement and one of such is Maya Alexus.
Maya Alexus is a software engineer, having recently graduated from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte and has become the first Black woman with a cloud technology YouTube channel.
She is proud to call herself the first software engineer in her family.
In her Instagram post she shared her story about how “pursuing a degree in computer science as a Black woman has been a difficult journey”.
Maya in a bid to leave a legacy behind at University of North Carolina, Charlotte is partnering and conducting research with the computing and informatics department to create a guide for freshman women of color to make sure that they have the tools to achieve greatness in computing.null
This is her final advise to every young Black Woman: “When you don’t see change or representation, do something about it. I thank God every day for the strength to persist and for blessing me with so many opportunities to be an example”, she says.
