From the West Side to the West Coast
Khalia Braswell received her first computer in the 4th grade and was instantly hooked. As a result of her early interest in tech, she enrolled in Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology, in Charlotte, North Carolina, for high school, where she fell in love with computer programming. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from North Carolina State University College of Engineering in 2013, Braswell attained a Master of Science in Information Technology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2016.
She believes in girls who code – so much that she left Apple to come home and help them
My life journey in tech was captured in the July 2018 Charlotte Observer, both online and in print! As a proud Charlottean, it meant a ton to have the news write about me and the work I've done with INTech. I even had my 4th grade teacher reach out to me after reading the article, which was awesome! Read the article (written by the homie Sherrell Dorsey) here.

NC State computer science young alumni award
In 2017, I was awarded the inaugural Young Alumni Award from the Computer Science Department (CSC) at NC State. This is for a CSC graduate who has graduated within the past 10 years. The considerations for selection are the same as for the CSC Hall of Fame, but recognizing this person will be at an earlier stage in his or her career accomplishments.
