SPAWAR hosts students for ‘My Brother’s Keeper’ event

SMy Brother's Keepertudents from Charleston-area middle schools spent the day at the Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR) to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and math — also known as STEM.

My Brother’s Keeper was created by President Obama to support the youth and to “address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.”

As a member of the public affairs team at SPAWAR, I enjoyed watching these young people learn how their lessons in school can translate into skills needed for their careers.

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
