Mae Jemison on Gems of Wisdom, "Never limit yourself because of others' limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination."

With several honors under her belt, Mae Jemison is an outstanding woman who will always hold a place in history. Jemison is known as being the first African-American women to travel into space. She was aboard the Space Shuttle “Endeavour” during 1992. However, Jemison has given much more to society than this through her accomplishments as a physician and engineer as well.

Notably, Jemison entered the Peace Corps after her medical training at Cornell Medical College and interning at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. It was during this time that Jemison served in Liberia and Sierra Leone. She provided medical care, along with supervising various parts of the medical care provided in the area, and implanting guidelines for safety and health issues. She also worked with the Center of Disease Control.

Since then, Jemison gave up her many teaching positions, along with her position at NASA to maintain the organization’s “100 Year Starship”, where she is the current principal. Many achievements have been given to Jemison over the years including being inducted into the International Space Hall of Fame in 2004, and she has been in many films such as “No Gravity” in 2011.

While Jemison has all the awards and experiences that make her a woman that will be remembered throughout history, she still encourages people to dream and never let an idea be limited! She encourages people to always use their imagination, as you never know when what you dream can come true!

Her pretty wedding band it worn in front of her engagement ring for all the world to see.

Silly question! How is the ring properly worn? My first marriage, I had my engagement ring first, then my wedding band. It makes sense that my engagement was on first, so I could just slide  on the wedding band to seal it in. I was told I was wrong.

Am I Ms. Wrong?
