P.S. Did we mention she’s also an official UN Women UK advocate?

July 6, 2020
On this week's episode of I’m over it I sat down with Alexis Williams, a 19-year-old computer science student at New York University. A little bit more than a month ago, Alexis created PB Resources, an online platform that connects people to BLM focused petitions, organizations, customized emails (which you’ve most likely used in recent weeks to send to your local government officials!), and more. BUT, that’s just one of the MANY things on Alexis’ list of accomplishments. Along with PB Resources, Alexis is also a Koding with Klossy scholar and Microsoft partner.
