Jemison Class - Year One / Year Two - Mrs Wills

Mae Jemison

American engineerphysician, and former NASA astronaut.



"The thing that I have done throughout my life is to do the best job that I can and to be me."


Mae Carol Jemison was born on October 17, 1956 in Decatur, Alabama. The youngest of three children, her mother was an secondary school teacher and her father was a maintenance supervisor.

In addition to her love for dance, Jemison knew that she wanted to study science at a very young age. Jemison grew up watching the Apollo airings on TV, but she was often upset that there were no female astronauts. However, Jemison was inspired by African American actress Nichelle Nichols who played Lieutenant Uhura on the Star Trek television show. Jemison was determined to one day travel in space. In 1973, she graduated from Morgan Park High School when she was 16 years old. Once she graduated, Jemison left Chicago to attend Stanford University in California.

After hard work and training, in 1992 Mae became the first Black woman to travel into space.
