#BlackHistoryMonth #tbt: Being the first African American woman to travel to space is one of Mae Jemison’s many accomplishments. A dancer, Peace Corps doctor, public speaker and astronaut, Mae went to college at age 16, holds 9 honorary doctorates and has founded many STEM-related programs for students.
I'm pretty good with dealing with failure, but I think its starting to get to me. I was rejected by a string of universities last year for my undergraduate studies and I was ok with it, although it took it's toll. Today, I found out that the health mentorship program I was looking at also rejected me. Im not one for self-pity, but I am starting to feel that my dream to become a surgeon might not be enough to let me pursue a medical career. How do you get over this fear?
