Braylon Tucker Oglesby, at the astonishing age of 12, is truly making his mark in the era of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), through the metaverse world. He is one of the youngest advisory members creating space in the metaverse. Braylon began his passion for STEM when he was 6 years old by learning to code (He’s been reading since he was 3.). His parents, Barry and Jennifer Oglesby, wanted him to learn more about coding because he was coding without any formal or informal instruction. One of the earliest memories of Braylon coding, was when his mother looked at her computer one day. Where one would normally see the word “Google”, Braylon coded it to say Jennifer, his mother’s name. Besides being shocked, his parents took immediate action. They registered him into several STEM programs. Since Braylon went on to complete the program so much faster than his STEM classmates, the instructor said that they didn’t have a class for him on his level. Barry and Jennifer then transferred schools and enrolled Braylon into Alta Loma Christian School where he was able to expand his knowledge of Coding and Programming, through Stem. In the fifth grade, Braylon programmed his first computer, using technology, such as Raspberry Pi. His parents knew that his love for technology expanded light years beyond just a video game. Braylon began creating his own games and would have his brothers and sister play the games for fun.
Fast forward, his parents connected Braylon with the CEO of MONK ENTERPRISES, who, after meeting him and testing his skills, decided to add Braylon as the youngest member of his team. Braylon Oglesby is a 12-year old, happy 7th grader, who is helping to create and develop a meta world. His parents are so proud of his accomplishments and have registered him into higher education courses through the University of California, Berkely. This is definitely broadening his knowledge in technology, specifically in Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrency, even more.
