Hello there! My name is Megan McLean, I am a college junior at Johnson C. Smith University pursuing my B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Cyber Security. As a young millennial, I am what one can describe as the perfect blend of analog and digital. I grew a love for technology when I became a DigiGirl at Microsoft's Tech camp for young girls. I knew I was hooked when they gave me my first Zune before I ever owned my first iPod. As I grew up, I wanted to find was to share my passion for technology and I began my journey as a Digital Literacy mentor after spending my summers in NYC to teach my grandparents, aunts, and uncle how to use their new tech devices. Year later, I now enjoy empowering seasoned adults to easily embrace the digital world to connect and engage with family and friends, improve their professional skill set, and reduce technology anxiety.

Outside of my academics, I continue my efforts to bridge the digital citizen gap by promoting STEAM as the Executive Director of my non-profit, The Learning Tree Tutorial and Enrichment Program. We have served the Queens borough community in Flushing, NY for the past 20 years. We have revolutionized the way STEM subjects are not only taught but received by black and brown communities. We provide standard academic tutoring and recreational activities for grades K-9 to build a firm understanding of each subject by incorporating real life experiences.

As an avid supporter of entrepreneurship, I take great pride in my role as Chief Marketing Officer of Johnson C. Smith’s first and only college accelerator program: Innovo Scholar Society. Innovo Scholar Society is a part of Innovo Laboratory, a small business incubator/think tank laboratory, run by the Smith Institute for Applied Research. Innovo Laboratory grows out of the University’s commitment to innovation and building intellectual capital particularly in the Northwest Corridor by connecting JCSU students to entrepreneurs, mentors, and Charlotte’s uptown business core.
