Fellow:Marc Brown (2022)
I was born and raised in the beautiful rural city of Port Antonio, Portland, Jamaica. I went to Titchfield High School, where I spent seven (7) fulfilling years which helped develop my mental fortitude and knowledge but, most importantly, transformed me from a teenager to an adult. I am currently a sophomore student majoring in Computer Science with a concentration in Cybersecurity at Shaw University, Raleigh, NC. Regarding campus involvement, I am the treasurer for the Brothers of Umoja, which focuses on molding young black men into positive role models, leaders, and innovators.
My community engagement focuses on being a member of the Leaders of the New Millennium, whose mission is to train and assist teenagers and young adults in personal development, education, and career development. 2022 has been an excellent year for me as an individual. I have been given several opportunities to network and gain new perspectives and experiences as a communications intern at NC Integrated Care for Kids in Durham, NC, as well as an information Security Analyst Intern at LexisNexis, Raleigh, NC.
I aspire to receive my bachelor's degree in the next three (3) years, moving on to becoming Software Engineer or having a career in Cyber Security. I will continue to move forward on my chosen path, shattering the obstacles that will be unavoidable when a person wishes to elevate themselves. Finally, I want to prove that I have the talent and skills to realize my dreams while also setting a positive example for those who come after me.
