Press Release

Charlotte, NC – Today, Congresswoman Alma S. Adams (NC-12) presented Khalia Braswell with the One Meck Community Recognition Award. This award is presented to constituents who have exhibited exemplary character and service to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the 12th Congressional District. Khalia Braswell is the Founder & CEO of INTech Camp for Girls, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inform and inspire girls to innovate in the technology industry:

“I’m proud to present this award to an outstanding member of our community and native Charlottean whose journey in technology began here in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Ms. Khalia Braswell has led a successful career in the tech sector as a former engineer for Apple and continues to give back to her own community through her organization - INTech Camp for Girls. Since its founding, INTech has shared the power of innovation and technology with over 500 minority girls in North and South Carolina through coding classes, mini-trainings, and summer camps, including a summer camp on the campus of Johnson C. Smith University,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Ms. Braswell’s heart for innovation, diversity, and inclusion has catapulted her organization’s efforts into the national spotlight as our nation grapples with the lack of diverse talent in the tech sector. She is a gleaming example of the best that Charlotte has to offer, and I am honored to recognize her service and commitment to creating more seats at the table for young women in tech.”

“As a native Charlottean, it is an honor to be recognized by Congresswoman Adams, who has been a pioneer for STEM for years,” said Khalia Braswell. “I look forward to the support as INTech continues to get more girls exposed to technology in North Carolina.”
