Studies show the level of ethnic and gender integration in STEM fields is no greater today than 30 years ago. STEM students of color often feel alone in their racial struggles. Rayah, via the arts and technology, addresses this shortage and helps girls/women form coalitions & communities early on.

In order to address the shortage, the app will match sponsor, volunteers, and participants. The organization will determine the appropriate volunteers and paticipants. The app will notify those selected. We are looking to build the prototype app as well as further developing the marketing strategy, so as to go to market. We believe going to market with Royal Connections will improve ethnic and gender integration in #STEM and #STEAM fields.
Adrienne Unae Dozier (NYC) and Vickie Cox Edmondson (GA) have a track record of using their skill-set to educate and empower marginalized people. In 2016, they were the actor and creative strategist behind Prissi, The Poodle, the prototype for Rayah, The Royal Poodle. Through their collective experience, girls of all ages will be awe-inspired toward Rayah, a live mascot, and subsequently STEM and STEAM fields.
