Mae Jemison

She is the first African-American female astronaut. In 1992, she flew into space aboard the Endeavour, becoming the first African-American woman in space.

Born October 17, 1956, in Decatur, Alabama, but considers Chicago, Illinois, to be her hometown. Recreational interests include traveling, graphic arts, photography, sewing, skiing, collecting African Art, languages (Russian, Swahili, Japanese), weight training, has an extensive dance and exercise background and is an avid reader. Her parents, Charlie & Dorothy Jemison, reside in Chicago.

Mae Jemison is a very remarkable woman. I like the fact that she has dreamed big and worked on her dream until she finally made it work. She is persistent, inspirational, optimistic and a highly achiever that would not let any obstacle stop her from realizing her dream.
