Increasing the number of black and brown youth interested in and participating in computer science.
Isaiah has a vision for making coding and computer science accessible to marginalized youth. When he discovered this passion through Youtube in 10th grade, he immersed himself in his trade, teaching himself to code and joining Google’s Code Next, where he served as a Computer Science Summit Representative. This role allowed him to advocate for increased funding for classroom materials, better instruction materials for teachers, and school engagement from Google Engineers. Isaiah is also a leader in his school and on the golf course. He was the third male golfer to qualify for state in his school’s history and was the only freshman to make varsity in 9th grade. He served as captain for most of his high school tenure and enjoyed being a role model for his peers who elected him Mr. Golf for Homecoming 2022. Being first exposed to golf through First Tee of Metro Atlanta, Isaiah took the sport by storm, placing top-15 in his county two years consecutively. Isaiah will attend NCA&T in fall of 2023 to study Computer Science.
