My time at STM Multimedia over the past year has truly been transformative. From the incredible individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting to the countless opportunities that have enriched my journey, every moment has been nothing short of phenomenal. STM Multimedia has become more than just a workplace; it's a welcoming home where I've found belonging and endless possibilities. I eagerly anticipate the exciting ventures that lie ahead in this inspiring environment.


Since 2017, We have built relationships with highschools, colleges, and universities across the WNC region. Each year we pick two schools and create unforgettable immersive homecoming experiences. Slay the Mic provides the DJ, photo booth, and generates student engagement through giveaways and a HBCU tailgate-like atmosphere.
