My name is Tajma Cameron and I am a first-year Ph.D. student enrolled in Drexel’s program in Educational Leadership and Policy. Before attending Drexel University School of Education, I earned an MS in Biotechnology Studies and a Master of Arts in Teaching with certification in Biology from the University of Maryland Global Campus, and a BS in Biology from Temple University. After teaching high school students in the subjects of science and math, I became interested in studying how the intersectionality of race and gender affects the educational outcomes of Black girls in STEM. My research interests include STEM education, equity in education, diversity, education policy, social justice, and urban education. As a Black female educator in STEM, I am passionate about bridging the inequity and underrepresentation of Black girls in STEM.
