My name is Dejah, aka Dej or Daisy— I am a proud Temple University alumna, former graphic & web designer, event curator, and baker. Currently representing a small 3% population of African American women working in technical spaces at the 76th largest tech company in the world. For fun, I love to cook and bake, travel the world, and I’m currently teaching myself Portuguese for my next journey across the globe. Let’s connect!

Hey Everyone, my name is Kimberly Casimir. I am from Orlando, FL. I have been living in Philly for almost 10 years. I attended Arcadia University studying Business Finance, then going on to earn my MBA in Finance from La Salle University. I am now an Accountant in the Tech Industry.

Outside of serious adult life, I love being outside, and hanging with my Family and Friends. Traveling and exploring new cities is a favorite hobby of mine. Also being into fitness has become a passion of mine, as I love to be active. The main things of course are binging shows and my guilty pleasure of reality tv and browsing social media, but being in bed will always be a favorite! But the gist is I’m really just a girl living life, being a foodie and learning from others, being down for whatever and staying true to myself.

Hey Friends! My name’s Iyaniwura, Jersey Girl born and raised but I’ve been in Philly for a year and a half now. I went to Cornell University and majored in Biological Sciences, and I now work in Operations and Strategy.

If I’m outside, there’s probably food involved. I love all things art, whether I’m creating it or consuming it. Music, museums, and manga are my magic words. I’m always down to explore and try something new––as long as I have time to mentally prepare for it and can take a nap after!
