Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Education: English, CUNY City College
Makeda Viechweg is a recent graduate from City College of New York as an English Literature major with a minor in Journalism. Makeda has many career goals, and one of them includes teaching. She first found her love for teaching when she was offered the chance to tutor a college class in her senior year with the City Tutors program. While tutoring, she learned pretty quickly that she wanted to be more involved in students’ education and be a positive influence in their lives. Not only has she taken part in the City Tutors program at City College, but she was also a staff writer for the Campus Magazine, the oldest publication in the CUNY system. With a new college degree under her belt, Makeda is excited to join the Blue Engine team and start this new chapter in her life.
