Azaria Cherry is a 15 year old sophomore in the Heath and Specialities Program at Maury High School. At the age of 11, she learned that many minority girls attending title 1 schools were not receiving equal access to STEM activities. The following year, she created her own non-profit organization, ZincGirlz, which provides inner city girls with the opportunity to explore stem, learn the importance of self-love and higher education, and introduces girls to community stewardship.
She also has her own positive affirmation business, PrettyGirlTeez, which sells everything from t-shirts to cups and ornaments. Outside of being a Girl Boss, Azaria enjoys participating in many after school activities, sports, and being a teen activist addressing numerous social issues affecting girls and women on local and global levels.
Lastly, she takes great pride in completing countless hours of community service and philanthropist efforts. Upon graduating in 2022, Azaria is looking forward to studying medicine on a collegiate level and becoming a pediatric emergency physician. Currently her top three college choices are Spelman, Howard, and Hampton University.
