Dr. Mae C. Jemison

role model

Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




Dr. Mae C. Jemison has always been a high flyer, graduating from high school at just 16 years old before earning both a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.A. in African and Afro-American Studies from Stanford University, followed by a doctorate degree in Medicine from Cornell University. In 1992, Jemison worked as a Science Mission Specialist on NASA’s STS-47 space shuttle Endeavor, and made history as the first African-American woman to go into space. “Whenever I have problems, I realize that my “in basket” will always be full—and I am not obligated to empty it. In other words, I take some time and imagine how important the problem is to my overall life.”

“I believe we should all have common sense and optimism. I am motivated and inspired by possibilities.”
