ďWorking with children is one of my passions,Ē she said. ďI am a 24-year old and only 2.5 years in my career. I donít have that many years of experience, but thus far I would have to say the most important choices Iíve made are that Iíve found mentors. I think itís important to have a mentor at all stages of your career because they can provide great insight on issues that you are not familiar with,Ē Lewter said.
ďIíve also made the choice to take on roles and duties that challenge me. Of course itís easy to take the job that is less stressful but why not challenge yourself? Take on a role that will in the end, help you to grow and prepare you for the next stages in your career. It will prove to be very beneficial in the long run.Ē
A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.
Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
