First, it really was a privilege to be able to attend AfroTech 2021 and be able to experience this during my senior year of university. Thank you to all that helped me get there ♥️
What is AfroTech 2021?
AfroTech is a digital and in-person conference held this year in what some may refer to now as the “metaverse”. The metaverse is the digital or virtual version of whatever world you’re in. You get to interact and network with other professionals through your avatar. There were the expo halls where you could speak with recruiters at their booths, but there were also other events hosted throughout the week (meeting with recruiters directly, career advice, etc.)

Attending AfroTech 2021
The conference was so awesome! It was quite the experience to interact and network with others virtually or in this “metaverse”. I think for this year, it took some adjustment, but AfroTech was a huge success despite many of us only participating virtually.
