Speaker Series (3)

Meet Nasiah Johnson, born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in a neighborhood called Brownsville. This area is notorious for its high crime and poverty rates. Luckily, he had two hardworking and supportive parents who constantly poured positive affirmations into his life. This made him believe becoming anything he wanted to be was achievable. Nasiah graduated from the University at Buffalo with a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering in 2019 and currently serves as a Systems Engineer at Lockheed Martin. Nasiah, also joined an organization called “100 Black Men, where he volunteers within the community to support young diverse talent. “Since I can’t actively volunteer in Brooklyn, I am making an impact here in my new city of Syracuse. Now, we are going to see what the future holds!” Hosted by Generation Next, the Tech and Culture Speaker Series promotes diversity, inclusion and belonging in tech-related fields through diverse speakers who are leading in the tech industry. The series invites speakers to share their personal stories to inspire, motivate and transform the mindset of the diverse audiences. Sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
