When @janellemonae shares this photo featuring @dalbarranchicas and @jedidahislerphd two dear friends, two amazing women of color in #WOCinSTEM who empower and inspire me (and thousands of others). Two people I am certainly thankful for. Check them out in Vanity Fair! #LATINASinSTEM #BLACKandSTEM #HiddenFigures #repost

Feelin' very blessed to be working for this company--surrounded by people who appreciate and value the work I do | ✨🔬⚗ #chemistsofinstagram #latinasinSTEM #qualitycontrolla #researchanddevelopment

When your sister is a bada** Latina in STEM. Only a sophomore and already presented her research at SCCUR this past weekend! I don't understand half that O.Chem *shivers* but she is out there doing the most! So so proud of you!#Biochem #LatinasInSTEM #Xingona

SHPE@STEVENS had such a great time in Seattle we can't thank @shpenational enough. Our members left with full time offers and internships that wouldn't have been possible without this conference. On that note we leave Washington with a little fun joining the #mannequinchallenge. Can't wait to see what Kansas City has in store for next year!!! #shpenationalconference2016 #latinasinSTEM #shpe2016

They each made a solar car☀️thanks #technolochicas for this amazing opportunity

Awesome event!!! Thank you @technolochicas Si se puede 💓🤓 #LatinasInStem #latinasintech #latinapower #womeninstem #womenintech

Never stop asking why. Despite the nerves, my introduction to my thesis talk went great. It was surreal to share with others what I have been working on. So thankful for my friends that were there supporting me. Now that my presentation is over, I am getting ready for my next presentation that will be in Hawaii next week! #womeninscience #latinasinstem #smithcollege

Motivational Monday:
I share my own story of failure regularly with my students from middle, high school, & those pursuing STEM degrees. Test anxiety was a real thing for me, so was my inability to focus in class, study, memorize concepts & necessary material. I'm a hands-on learner & not being able to grasp as fast & well as my peers really took a toll on my confidence & idea of self-worth. My sophomore year, I called my mom crying after failing yet another Calculus II exam; I told her I wasn't cut out for engineering & I just needed to change my degree to something easier. She told me that was not an option. That I needed to stick with it... Even if it meant I had to fail some more & even take the class over. In the end, I registered for Calculus II 5 times. Failed twice, withdrew twice, & passed my junior year.
Very few people know how much & how hard I've failed to be where I am today, to have the grit, the self-awareness, the determination & the passion that gets me through it all. Failing is a part of the process & I'm so thankful to have had my mother push me, believe in me, & not allow me to quit even when I quit on myself.

When your little is a scientist too and y'all get each other's nerdy humor😂🤓🔬🎀#LatinasInSTEM #ScientistBigAndLittle #NobodyGetsUs #WeDoTho #SmartCookies #ShesSoGneiss #ILabYouLittle @its_virg

And so, she decided to start living the life she imagined... So much has happened this last 12 months it's been hard to keep my feet underneath me. As I close my trip to Spain, my birthday trip, my dream bucket list adventure, I can't help but be grateful & honestly in awe. I only dreamed of taking a trip like this much less to have toured 3 different cities in 1.5 weeks. Blessed doesn't begin to describe how I feel but furthermore, determined, driven, hell bent. The more I look back at all the years I didn't feel smart enough, pretty enough, strong enough.. Enough in general, the more I see how much I've grown into the person I've always dreamed of being. Spain was a blessing & even a mindful rejuvenation to now once I get home.. It's back to the grind.

Today's Black History Month Spotlight- Ursula Burns "Ursula M. Burns serves as Chairman (since May 2010) of Xerox and was the CEO of the company from July 2009 to December 2016. As such, she was the first black-American woman CEO to head a Fortune 500 company. She is also the first woman to succeed another woman as head of a Fortune 500 company, having succeeded Anne Mulcahy as CEO of Xerox. In 2014, Forbes rated her the 22nd most powerful woman in the world.

Burns was raised by a single mother in the Baruch Houses, a New York city housing project. Both of her parents were Panamanian immigrants. She obtained a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from New York University in 1980 and a MS in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University a year later." #fems4STEM #STEMGirlsRunTheWorld
