For the past year, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Petra Holešínská, UNC graduate student and varsity basketball player hailing from the Czech Republic. Petra has been instrumental in helping us use our social media platforms to spotlight the amazing students and apprentices here at Code the Dream, as well as other important historical figures throughout US history that had a major impact on science and technology.
“My time at Code the Dream has been awesome. Everyone has been extremely helpful and welcoming from my first day here, which made the transition really easy. I got to improve my social media skills, while getting to know the people that make CTD so special. I want to thank Lori & Justin for their support and guidance. This organization is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it.”
Petra is set to graduate this month with her Master’s degree in Educational Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship. Afterwards, she plans to continue pursuing a professional basketball career in the WNBA and overseas. We will miss working with Petra but couldn’t be more excited to see where her career takes her next!
