#DrMaeJemison is #SpaceBae. In 1987, she became the first African-American woman to be admitted into the astronaut training program. After more than a year of training, she became the first African-American female astronaut, earning the title of science mission specialist—a job that would make her responsible for conducting crew-related scientific experiments on the space shuttle. And in 1992, she finally flew with six other astronauts aboard the Endeavour on mission STS47 and became the first African-American woman in space. We salute this queen! #womenshistorymonth #BlackWomenMakeHistory #MaeJemison

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

Back in 1992, the whole world was looking up to Mae Jemison—literally!—as she became the first African-American woman to travel in space. As the daughter of a math teacher, Mae was always interested in the world of STEM. After college, she got her medical degree and put her skills to work as part of the Peace Corps. But it wasn’t until after Sally Ride’s historic flight that she decided to make her childhood dreams of space flight a reality.

Jemison took to the skies as a Mission Specialist on STS-47, and conducted tests on weightlessness, motion sickness, and other investigations. “The first thing I saw from space was Chicago, my hometown," she has recalled. "I was working on the middeck where there aren't many windows, and as we passed over Chicago, the commander called me up to the flight deck. It was such a significant moment because since I was a little girl I had always assumed I would go into space.” Special thanks to Girl Scout Montana for her heartfelt depiction of Mae.

Nuestra creatividad a veces se ve limitada por muchos factores sociales, familiares, mentales, etc., pero depende de nosotras dejarla salir y permitirle que se revele. El Yoga aporta beneficios en la creatividad y la auto-expresión, permitiendo también una conexión con el espíritu.

Haha! Imagine if Mae Jemison had to believe to those who thought that woman or African American cannot be an astronaut? To become the astronaut you should study and train hard. You need self-confidence and that's not something you take from the people who don't believe in you. Gender and racial stereotypes can ruin self-trust of young people. Be yourself and do not underestimate the possibilities the Universe had kept for you! Go!
