ITP alum Jaycee Holmes was recently featured in a rolling out article about how she became a professor in her 20s:

"After graduating high school in 2013, she earned her bachelor’s degree in math from Spelman College in 2016. Then, she went to grad school at NYU before earning her master’s degree in the institution’s interactive telecommunications program. Once she received her graduate degree, she spent two years speaking on panels throughout the country and worked at Microsoft.

In 2020, her career saw a new chapter.

That was the year she co-founded CodeHouse, a nonprofit focusing on building a student-to-tech company pipeline. It was also the year she became an official professor at her alma mater, Spelman College. Now, as a co-director at the school’s innovation lab, she enjoys pouring into the next generation of students who aren’t too much younger than her.

Recently, rolling out had an opportunity to speak with the intellectual superstar."
