So, for every Friday in the month of February, I decided to dedicate a post towards Black History Month educating on Past and Present History Makers! I was on my way to work Monday morning and heard a great story on the Tom Joyner Morning show about a 79 year old woman name Estella Pyfrom who is funding her dream through her retirement money…A bus that will stationed in low income areas where kids don’t have the access to modern & advance technology! I was SO inspired by this story and had to share!!!! Check out an excerpt from the story below!
02/16/15 – Roland Martin talks to 79-year-old Ms. Estella Pyfrom about her mobile learning center affectionately called Estella’s Brilliant Bus which serves as a tool to teach kids in under-served areas about computer coding and technology. Estella and her bus are hoping to reach a goal of $50,000 to embark on a road tour that will lead her to Yes We Code and the Technology Village at Essence Festival.
