The reason why I want to be like Katherine Johnson is because she is an example as well as an inspiration to young black girls like myself who are interested in science and technology. During her time it was hard for African Americans as well as women to have a career in mathematics, let alone the field of science and technology. The fact that she does that is incredible. This proves to me that women can do anything that they set their minds to! With just a little determination and hard work, women can do the impossible. I’m glad that young African American girls and women have a role model like Katherine Johnson to look up to. I'm happy that I'm able to follow in the footsteps of a strong African American Women in the field of science and technology!
