What is the biggest issue in the tech industry right now?
What aspects of tech are you educating young people about?
We Create Tech is an educational disruptor, bringing a nontraditional approach to how Black and Brown students in underserved and underrepresented communities learn about music, technology, video production and virtual worlds. Through We Create Tech, students learn how to make music through coding, basics in video production, entrepreneurship, marketing, ownership in the music industry, and virtual world deployment and development. We Create Tech [currently] has one event under its belt where high school students had an opportunity to indulge in one part of the curriculum being developed for a formal launch. In partnership with a Georgia Tech University platform, students from ages 14 to 17 gathered to learn how to code and make beats. When a student finishes We Create Tech, they should have a credentialed badge, an enterprise-based business, and skills that are comparable to industry peers. They can choose an individual path or intertwine them all. I am taking all of my multidisciplinary experiences and presenting them.
What technology do you use for your business?
I am working on a community for creatives with some amazing like-minded individuals that have more programming and partnership development for We Create Tech. I am looking for companies like OneTen and others to partner with me to provide the resources the students need, while my team and I teach them the skills. Lastly, I’m keeping connected with everyone through my website and providing the services they need through Bold Creative Brand.
