From WCC to NASA WCC ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

Aisha Bowe has two aerospace engineering degrees from the University of Michigan, spent nearly seven years working for NASA in northern California and today is a successful tech entrepreneur based in the Washington D.C. area.

That impressive career progression started with a single A in an algebra class at Washtenaw Community College. That set off what Bowe calls the key to any large-scale success — a series of small wins. “If I take the time to think about how many opportunities there were for me to get stuck, it’s staggering, said Bowe. “But then you find that next small win and you keep going.” From there, the small wins continued to pile up. They led to a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree and an internship at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, and eventually to an award-winning career developing algorithms in support of air traffic management.

WCC is by far the best choice I made in my career. That’s really where my life started to take off.

This intensive online class trains and qualifies you to provide assistance to crime victims. Prepare to work in areas such as domestic violence shelters, crisis centers and hotlines, as well as with state and county governments to assist crime victims in progressing through the criminal justice system and toward successful recovery. Class topics include: legal terminology, legal process, legislation regarding victims’ rights, counseling skills ethics, effects of victimization on the victim, victim advocate skills, guardianships and crisis intervention.

In 2013, Bowe co-founded STEMBoard, which partners with defense industry and private-sector organizations to provide multi-million dollar smart systems and software solutions. She has topped a list of “Brilliant Women Innovators” and been featured in Entrepreneur, Black Enterprise and Ebony magazines. As the CEO of STEMBoard, Bowe has also made it a personal mission to close the achievement gap by empowering minority youth in STEM fields to become the industry’s future.

INSTRUCTOR PROFILE

Natalia Alexandrova

DANCE AND LANGUAGE TRAINER

Natalia Alexandrova has a lifelong passion for teaching and dancing. After studying ballet, choreography and history of dance in Russia as a child, Alexandrova studied economics and management in college. Her first experience in teaching was at an English language school in Moscow. After immigrating to Canada, she rediscovered dancing while working at a ballroom studio in Toronto. The owners quickly recognized her abilities and began to train her as an instructor and international competitor. “Coming back to dancing, teaching and competing woke up a part of my heart which was frozen for so many years,” says Alexandrova. “Dancing allows people to express themselves in ways normal life does not. Dancing teaches you discipline and confidence, but in a fun environment. The smiles I see on the faces of my students tell me that dancing is changing their lives for the better.” Alexandrova brings passion to her training, whether it’s dancing or Russian language. Her purpose is to open new paths of discovery for each participant in her classes.
