Mae Jemison Visits Berkeley Carroll

BC was honored to welcome educator, astronaut, and entrepreneur Dr. Mae Jemison to campus as part of our Inspire, Innovate & Ignite campaign, which recognizes our work over the past 3 years to move the school forward, building facilities like the Beta Lab and new libraries while renovating and expanding others like science labs and classrooms. The first woman of color in space, she told students they should not let others limit their potential, using examples from her own life and her diverse interests to illustrate what happens when you reach, extend and try to go beyond.

"Think about what kind of person you want to be because jobs change. I've had a lot of different careers --but all of them were about exploration, creativity, being challenged and making a difference."
