Talented Lady who love music gets enrolled to become an Aeronautic Engineer by mistake, now gets love for using music to teach math

A brilliant and talented 26-year-old American Lady who goes by the name Dajae Williams has become successful in both music and science after being enrolled to become an Engineer by mistake.

Dajae Williams had a love for music as a kid but her teacher at Kirkwood High School in Missouri, United States mistakenly enrolled her in honours geometry and changed the course of her passion. Her teacher admitted it was indeed a mistake, but what they do not know is how it is going to affect Dajae’s life.

However, Dajae Williams was able to show her brilliance in the science course. After High School, Dajae Williams enrolled on an Engineering course at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri, United States.

She recalled her mother inspiring her to try the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field due to its lack of gender and racial representation. “My mom convinced me to go into a STEM field,” she said.

“She saw that I was getting good at math and science, so she was like, ‘Why don’t you explore this. There’s not a lot of women. There’s not a lot of black people in this field. See what you can do. See if you can make a change.’”

It’s always an exhilarating experience being around so many smart people, just being present, and taking it all in because there is so much to learn,” she said.

Dajae Williams fused her love for music and science by incorporating her lessons into rap songs. “Sometimes education can be, at least in math and science, it can be a very traumatic experience…especially for kids of color. We’re not necessarily taught in the language that we learned growing up,” she explained to St. Louis Public Radio.

She went viral with her hit Quadratic Formula video. There, she took Soulja Boy’s popular “Crank That” beat and added lyrics on how to solve the quadratic equation.

She noted that her mother’s motivation worked out for her in the end because now she’s able to use both her passions to make a difference. “Put yourself out there. Apply for things that you don’t think you qualify for. Take classes that you don’t think you’re smart enough for. It will take you further than you realize,” she said.
