Stephen Seymour

2021

Tech

Stephen is Bahamian born and bred, son of a single mother office clerk. He comes from a family of hardworking and supportive women. Stephen chose Morehouse because he wanted to holistically develop his character as a man; it didn't give him the most scholarships but he felt that he would experience unique growth there, and he did. Starting with 3D Arts & crafts projects in high school he always liked the idea of building things. At Morehouse, he expanded his toolbox to include science and engineering tools and co-founded MakeWay, an engineering design organization, during his Sophomore year. From a community impact perspective, he is focused on making quality STEM education experiences more accessible to minority students. Post-graduation, Stephen plans to devote some of his free-time to non-profits focused on doing just that in addition to accepting a full-time offer as a Hardware Engineer at Microsoft.
