Zavian Stanfield is currently an apprentice at Studio Mesh. Since he was 13, he’s shadowed at the MESH office on the west side of Charleston, West Virginia while his mom was welding the studio storefront, slowly picking up an interest in computer programming. He inspired the start of our Makeshop Design Lab youth design & coding program in 2016, attended many workshops, worked as a student teacher, and in 2021, he ran the program teaching workshops to west side youth through his Apprenticeship. Zavian experiences all parts of the studio work, dabbling in code, mastering CMS work, and supporting in website management for clients. A South Charleston High School graduate, after this gap year Apprenticeship, he plans to pursue his web development degree with the support of MESH mentors. In his free time Zavian likes to disconnect by hiking, camping, mountain biking, and in general appreciating the outdoors.
