A Bit About Me
Jada Simone Carter is a third year Computer Science Major from Charlotte, NC. She is currently a George W. Gore Presidential Scholar at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, FL. She’s very involved on campus as a dancer on the Venom Pom Squad, a member of the National Council of Negro Women, and an inaugural member of the FAMU chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. She hopes to pursue a career in Software Development or Cybersecurity after completing her undergraduate studies and wants to continue her work with her nonprofit, #GetEngaged. She currently serves as Miss Charlotte Mecklenburg 2023 in the Miss North Carolina Organization. She enjoys spending time with family, competing in pageants, and all things brunch!
She started #GetEngaged because of the gender and race disparity she noticed while taking STEM courses throughout her scholastic career. Although she always had a phenomenal support system to keep her motivated to overcome this adversity, it concerned her that every young woman couldn't say the same, and she wanted to be the solution. Being a mentor and inspiration for young women, especially young women of color, became an important role for her to play and she's been committed to being the best she can be. Through partnerships with other nonprofits like STEMS4Girls, Inc. and Ladies Learning to Lead, Jada has been able to expand #GetEngaged's reach and impact young women.
Jada will be competing at the Miss North Carolina pageant in High Point, NC June 21-25! She hopes to see you there and cheer her on at the High Point Theater!
Jada will start her fourth and final year at Florida A&M University. She's on the road to becoming an Alumna!
#GetEngaged will partner with STEMS4Girls, Inc. in Tallahassee, FL to meet young women in the local area who are interested in learning about STEM and connect them with programs. More info to come!
