In 2019, Jacqueline “STEM Queen” Means of Wilmington was crowned Miss Delaware’s Outstanding Teen, was selected as a Bank of America Student Leader, was chosen to attend the Disney Dreamer Academy, was awarded the Governor’s Youth Service Award, appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show” and “Access Hollywood” (twice), continued her Girls Empowerment STEM initiative — and, in true influencer fashion, even has at least one brand supporting her on social media.

Means is capping off the year with another honor: She’s been named a T-Mobile Changemaker.

Thirty youth projects from across the country received $2,000 in seed funding and will convene at T-Mobile’s Bellevue, Washington HQ for the Changemaker Lab, a three-day immersive experience where they’ll meet with mentors from T-Mobile and social entrepreneur network Ashoka while meeting the other young Changemakers from across the country. One team from each category will be selected as the Category Winner and receive an additional $3,000; one grand prize winner will receive a total of $10,000.

Means’ project, which is in the competition’s Education category, is Empowering Today’s Girls to be Tomorrow’s Scientists, aligning with her initiative of inspiring inner-city girls to embrace STEM with hands-on workshops. It is the only project from Delaware this year, although the New Castle County-based Dual School was selected in 2018.
