“Though there are a lot of difficulties that come with being Black in the U.S., I had a very sheltered childhood and my parents made it a priority to live somewhere with great educational opportunities. However, it wasn’t until I went off to college that I’d learned to appreciate that opportunity. More importantly, I’ve learned that most people who look like me don’t have access to those same opportunities, and I’ve come to realize it’s my responsibility to be a part of that change. Edgility provides the space to do that and leverage my education, so meeting Allison (co-founder) for a school project felt like a sign from the universe!”
- While completing his undergraduate degree Devin interned in Washington D.C. fundraising for the ACLU.
- He earned a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
- Having graduated in May 2020, he resolved that going back to school was the best option for his professional development and is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration from his alma mater’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.
Devin lives in Chapel Hill while he finishes school, and when he’s not studying or working he loves to stay active with weightlifting and boxing. Being a sustainability advocate, he’s also a newfound vegetarian (and aspiring vegan) so he spends time trying new foods and recipes.
