Desiree Jenkins from Thomasville, NC, was chosen for her excellent GPA and commitment to pursuing a career in marine biology. Growing up near the ocean, she saw how pollution impacted the local environment, which led her to research careers where she could make a difference. She’s already started to learn how to scuba dive to prepare for her post-college career.
“When I saw that the scholarship was related to STEM, I really wanted to apply for it because I really want to advocate for more women being in STEM and dominating that field,” said Desiree, who will be a freshman at UNC Wilmington this fall. “I think I was about 8 years old when I decided marine biology was what I wanted to do, so I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.”
CodeWizardsHQ is dedicated to encouraging kids in STEM through its interactive, live online coding education program. The company offers a real world internship at the end of its high school program, so creating a scholarship to support students in college was a natural progression.
“The job market for STEM careers just continues to grow, and we know first hand how important it is for kids to get a head start,” said CodeWizardsHQ Founder Jey Iyempandi. “This scholarship is an extension of our mission as a company and we’re honored to support Desiree in her college career.”
