“For years, I wanted to attend General Assembly but the price seemed out of reach. I received a wonderful opportunity through the Jessica Vollman Foundation, and I couldn't turn it down. My software engineering course gave me the skillset to be a better founder and creator. My capstone was a tech prototype for Black Web Fest, my nonprofit organization. I am now building out the platform which will democratize emerging media and tech for underrepresented communities. Joining GA has made a positive change not only for me but a ripple effect that will benefit my community.”
