Transforming a long-standing passion into a future career

Transforming a long-standing passion into a future career

Outside of the classroom, Foster is active in several groups, including the Equity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or “E-STEM,” program, a grant-funded initiative that creates pathways to academic success for students from historically underrepresented groups in science, math and engineering fields. “Academically, DU has given me the ability to do everything I wanted,” he says. “I appreciate that DU prioritizes diversity inside and outside of academics,” he says.

“I love the narrative of games and putting myself in the characters’ shoes. I believe games have the potential to teach and get players thinking about social issues,” he says. Sterling said this unique program — a mix of the study of art, design, media, culture and technology — has allowed him to further consider the value of games, beyond fun.

In a first-year course on writing and video games, Foster put the idea of game-as-teacher into practice when he developed a board game that focused on the social aspects of minimum wage. As an Emergent Digital Practices major and computer science minor at DU, Foster is on his way to make that dream a reality. 

Foster says he’d love to see any deserving high school senior be able to attend DU if they wish, regardless of finances. “Donors make that possible for so many students,” he says. To past and present donors, Foster says, “I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me and for other students who have been fortunate enough to attend DU through scholarships.”

A third-generation DU student — Foster’s grandmother and mother attended DU — Foster says the endowed scholarships he has received played a big role in his decision and ability to attend DU.   For the past three years, Foster has volunteered with DU’s Black Male Initiative Summit, a program for 8th through 12th grade Black male students that promotes leadership, academic achievement with an emphasis on graduating from high school and attending a post-secondary institution, and community involvement while developing Black male identity.
