Trevor is the winner of the first Travelers Insurance HBCU Scholarship through Trajectory Foundation. Trevor is from Philadelphia, PA and plans to major in Computer Science with a concentration in Software Engineering at North Carolina Central University where she looks forward to studying at a college that enhances a sense of community and support both academically and socially. Trevor’s smile and confidence blew us away in our discussion with her. She was fortunate to have a 4th grade teacher who realized that she was not an careless student but instead recognized that she had learning disorders which were diagnosed to be dyslexia and dyscalculia. With additional resources and fierce determination Trevor has thrived. She attended STEM workshops offered in her city and became a Teen Advisory Board Member and a volunteer Lead STEM instructor for the non-profit organization TechGirlz. She has programmed her own motion sensor using Arduino, is versed in using 3D printers and became active in Girls in Aviation, the Civil Air Patrol and an Exelon STEM Ambassador. Her lessons in courage came from her mom who worked two and three jobs to makes ends meet, while volunteering extensively in her community including turning their basement into a pantry to provide free food to neighbors during the pandemic. Trevor has an unbelievably bright future ahead and both Travelers Insurance and Trajectory Foundation are proud to support her college journey.
