About Adeja

Adeja Cheek is a native of Durham, North Carolina. She graduated from JD Clement Early College High School in May of 2020 with 60 college credits. As a senior, Adeja served as Teen Ambassador for Game Plan: College, a college readiness program through the Emily K Center that focuses on providing accessible resources to underrepresented high school students. Her tasks ranged from data entry to creating closed captioning for YouTube videos. From her years of experience with the Emily K Center, she has found a passion for student advocacy and community building.

Adeja is currently a junior at UNC Charlotte, majoring in Special Education with a minor in Film Studies. Because her courses are online, Adeja likes to go back to Durham and spend time with her family. While there, she also picks up shifts at one of her prior jobs, The Pet Wagon, a dog daycare and hotel.
