Celebrating February- Black History Month

“Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in your world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.” -Dr. Mae Jemison


Dr. Mae Jemison was born in Alabama but raised in Chicago. At an early age, Jemison was always interested in space and science. She wanted to travel in space and thought that she would be able to. Some people started to question her interests and passion, but she kept on pursuing her dream. At the age of 16, she was accepted to Stanford University. Jemison graduated with two bachelor's degrees in chemical engineering and African-American studies. She became a medical doctor and joined the Peace Corps to help provide health services in Africa. Throughout her career, she still had her childhood dreams in the back of her mind. Dr. Mae Jemison contacted NASA and applied for their astronaut program. In 1992, she had a fantastic opportunity to travel through outer space on the Space Shuttle Endeavor. Jemison was the first African-American female astronaut. Today, she focuses on inspiring children to pursue their dreams and study science.
