Honored to be selected as a 40 under 40 alumni. ESPECIALLY given most of my work is undoing lessons learned from my time as a Black math major at the Institute 🐝⁣
We got some real heavy hitters in this 2021 cohort. Make sure y’all also see how my good sis is continuing to make her impact 🐝 ⁣

About Me

Michole Washington is a dual-degree Ph.D. in Mathematics Education and Masters in Applied Mathematics student at the University of Michigan. In 2016, she graduated as the 9th Black Woman to earn a B.S. in Applied Mathematics from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Using her social media platform (IG: @Mathematichole_) she shares tips and advice to navigate applying for college (undergrad & grad) and earning scholarships/fellowships.

Despite her academic and extracurricular achievements in high school, college was once a distant dream. It clashed with the reality that her family was low-income in an under resourced community. Even though she had an unique affinity to mathematics and was a passionate leader and servant in her community, it seemed as if none of it mattered without the finances to back it. However, to date she has earned all of her degrees for FREE by being rewarded over $500,000 in scholarships.

She has published original research through the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA and participated in the Budapest Semester in Mathematics in Hungary. Before starting grad school, Michole founded and operated a mathematics educational company called Afrithmetic, where she has created and implemented original calculus workshops and other math summer programs.

Now as a doctoral student at the University of Michigan, she continues to mentor, inspire, and support the academic needs of Black and other minority students in college and those aspiring to be in college or graduate school. You can learn more about Michole on IG @Mathematichole_ .
