CCG Media presents High-Tech Sunday. On today’s episode of High-Tech Sunday, our hosts, Dr. Mark Vaughn and Lango Deen sit down with Systems Engineer for Lockheed Martin Corporation, Demetria Hall, for a conversation on following your passion and fighting your fears.
Starting from humble beginnings growing up in the small refinery town of Port Arthur, TX, Demetria always had a love for science and math despite not having many engineering role-models. Hall transferred this love into a successful career, as she is currently the Flight Simulation and STEM Project Lead and has lead the program for the past five years.
Knowing the importance of having role-models, Demetria ensures to pay it forward to help shape future engineers and encourages them to keep going. Hall volunteers tireless hours of her time outside of work, but feels blessed with the opportunity to use her platform and engage with students on a regular basis while performing her current job role. As a result of her dedication to developing the future of the youth, Demetria is a recipient of the Community Service award for the 2020 Women of Color and 2021 BEYA STEM Conference.
