Zoey Johnson

Spelman College
Class of 2026

Since her childhood, Zoey has passionately served her community as an academic and nonprofit leader, tutor, and financial aid specialist. She wanted to serve in these roles to increase the confidence of the young people whom she’s empowered to pursue STEM careers while solidifying her soft leadership skills. As a community leader, Zoey has fought to make science and engineering opportunities more accessible for youth from diverse backgrounds. Having helped her peers overcome severe inequalities in the STEM field, she is now better equipped to educate and encourage the next generation of aspiring scientists to pursue their dreams. In college, she plans to not only start her own organization that will help female scientists of color network with other professionals, but also join Women Who Code and encourage her colleagues to confidently become innovative STEM leaders. Zoey seeks to continue advocating for the greater representation of black scientists and engineers in academic research and corporate capacities across the United States.
