According to Dr. Jemison, "I wanted to be an astronaut, but I didn't think it was possible. I didn't know anyone who had ever done it. I didn't know anyone who looked like me who had ever done it. But I did know that no one had ever told me that I couldn't. So I thought I could." This quote exemplifies her determination and serves as a powerful reminder to break free from societal limitations and pursue our dreams.
