Shedika Williams and was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Blue Engine caught her attention when she realized how much of the mission statement aligned with her own. She studied Sociology for 4-years and sociology made her realize a lack of effort most institutions dedicate to their students. Hearing how BETAs work with small groups of students to improve the students’ experience in the classroom is an asset Shedika finds very important. Shedika feels that children spend most of their days in the classroom, so it’s important that as a society we learn that each student is diverse and learn to cater to their needs and pay attention to their learning skills and develop reciprocating relationships. She is excited about the school year ahead and looking forward to meeting students, building positive relationships, and being a young adult they can look up to and come to for advice.
