deja malone, College Success Advisor

Deja Malone is a College Success Advisor at The SEED Foundation. Deja serves as a resource to SEED graduates and assists them with anything financially, academically, or socially while in college. Prior to joining SEED, Deja spent nearly four years providing college access and support programming to scholars through an educational non-profit in St. Louis, MO-- InspireSTL. Being that Deja is a native of St. Louis, as well as an alumna of the public education system, she feels that it is her duty to immerse herself in the various inequitable layers of education within her hometown and beyond.

Deja is passionate about engaging individuals interested in the process of supporting students of color to and through college, successfully.  She is excited to put her education and volunteer experience into work in her new role at SEED. During her free time, Deja enjoys mentoring youth, spending time with her loved ones, buying candles, and researching interesting information.
