Mae C. Jemison 🚀 "What you expose people to, is what they understand and what they see, [...] these are the things that influence you." . She's an endless source of inspiration, and wisdom.

Dr. Mae Jemison was the first African American woman to travel in space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor on Sept. 1992. Dr. Jemison received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University and her M.D. from Cornell Medical College. She was inspired to apply to the astronaut program after Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, went in 1983 and actress Nichelle Nichols, who portrayed Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek. #QOTD#MaeJemison
“Once I got into space, I was feeling very comfortable in the universe. I felt like I had a right to be anywhere in this universe, that I belonged here as much as any speck of stardust, any comet, any planet.” —Mae Jemison, astronaut, scientist, and #MMLaFemme
