1. She is the first black woman to earn a Ph.D in computer science from North Carolina State University.
2. She's been coding since she was a child!
3. She was the first black woman faculty member of the computer science department at Howard University.
4. And she is a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University (Just like me, so that makes her doper than your average off the gate!)
Today I got a chance to visit with Dr. Washington in her office on the campus of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, fitting place for a Rock Star like Nicki!
