Verizon Innovative Learning showed me what it's like to really be a leader – Verizon Communications


Verizon Innovative Learning has provided thousands of students at Title I middle schools across the nation with advanced technology, next-generation curriculum and devices and data access that they can use to explore STEM at school and at home. It only makes sense that some of those students would continue their studies and choose careers that put STEM front and center.

Minu Patel, Nycire Vaughn and Ameera Smith are three of those students. They were on the inaugural Tech Team at Franklin D. Roosevelt Middle School in Bristol, Pennsylvania. The group supports the Verizon Innovative Learning program, troubleshooting tech issues and helping teachers and students with their devices.

“When I entered Tiger Tech, I was like, ‘This is new. This is exciting. This is what I want to do.’ If I wasn’t exposed to that in middle school, I would probably not be majoring in computer science,” says Minu, who is now a sophomore at Temple University. She wants to work in cybersecurity and she dreams of joining forces with the FBI and creating an organization to help more girls break into STEM fields.
