The first African-American woman in space, Dr. Mae C. Jemison was born on October 17, 1956 in Decatur, Alabama but considers Chicago, Illinois her hometown. She received a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering (and completed the requirements for a Bachelor in African and Afro-American studies) at Stanford University in 1977. Dr. Jemison also received a Doctorate degree in medicine from Cornell University in 1981. After medical school she did post graduate medical training at the Los Angeles County University of Southern California Medical Center. As an area Peace Corps medical officer for Sierra Leone and Liberia in West Africa, she managed the health care delivery system for U.S. Peace Corps and U.S. Embassy personnel.

Link 5 Mar 6 notes Jeremy Lin is making a difference for underprivileged youth in Houston»

Hey guys, this is your friendly fyhouston moderator with a shameless plug. I, along with many Rice and UH students, volunteer with a nonprofit organization called PAIR, the Partnership for the Advancement and Immersion of Refugees. PAIR is one of 3 organizations that Jeremy Lin’s Make a Difference foundation is going to donate to, but the organization with the most votes will benefit with a visit from Jeremy himself. PAIR reaches hundreds of kids in different schools and from various backgrounds all throughout South Houston. For a lot of these kids, Jeremy’s story is an inspiration and a chance to meet him is probably something they’d never imagined. So please, take 5 seconds of your time to click the link and “like” PAIR.

tl;dr: VOTE FOR PAIR, then reblog!
