Author . STEM Activist . Speaker
Now a college student at Pace University in New York, majoring in Information Systems,
my passion lies where technology, business, and education intersect.
Positioned to Inspire.
I have held several successful internships with companies and organizations such as Microsoft, Everfi, and the Department of Commerce (Intern to Deputy Director of Commerce). Currently, I am an Intern at Infor in New York City for the Education Alliance Program. Based on the experience and skills I have gained in my positions, I am uniquely qualified to empower a generation to think big in pursuit of their dreams and to share some tools and resources on how to accomplish this!
I believe strongly in sharing my gifts and giving back. I have volunteered for several youth-focused organizations such as NAF, Many Mentors, and Black Girls Code. I bring enthusiasm whether it’s while acting as a speaker, introducing girls to the world of coding, or helping students with college, scholarship, and internship applications.
“Combining STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) with social justice is what keeps me motivated – I literally want to change the face of STEM.“
I’m Here to Help.
I am the author of “Sasha Savvy Loves to Code” a STEM-focused children’s book. I’ve written this book to encourage and empower girls, especially girls of color, (ages 7-10), to learn how to code. We need more diversity in the tech industry and we need more diverse books. This book covers both.
I’ve noticed that there just aren’t enough girls involved in STEM-related activities. Less than 1% of high school girls are even interested in pursuing a computer science degree. Only 11% of women of color are in STEM career fields. Raising interest and changing these statistics starts with exposing girls to STEM at an early age.
I want to help bring those excluded and underrepresented into the STEMosphere of possibilities. I am a sought-after speaker to raise awareness in STEM by educators, parents, and organizations. My mission is simple. I literally want to change the face of STEM.
Let’s do this!
Sasha has been recognized for her outstanding efforts to raise awareness regarding STEM’s lack of diversity. She is the proud recipient of the prestigious Imani Award and the Prize for Achievement from the Kurt Giessler Foundation. She has also been featured is several publications from around the world, including the United States, France, Japan, Kenya, and the Philippines.
