Age 10

My name is Jamila, and I want to help with women rights, African-American rights, and equality in this world when I get older. After I saw the movie Hidden Figures, I realized I would like to be more like Katherine Johnson because she's a great example for me and I'm so thankful to learn her story. When she told the guy in the movie "yes, they hire girls at NASA, and not just because they were skirts, but because they wear glasses," I thought that was awesome. Her whole story inspires me to be an amazing black woman. Just like her, I love mathematics and science, and I can't wait to be a mathematician and scientist for NASA. I know I can do it because Katherine Johnson did it and that makes me feel really good and happy inside. Thank you Katherine Johnson for all that you've done for us in this world, I'm going to make a difference like you!
