Anything is possible when you believe in yourself
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Mary who loved science and was very good at math. Her biggest dream was to work with astronauts.
Mary lived during a time when Black people were segregated. Because of that, she wasn't able to attend the same school as white people. But in order to become an engineer, she needed to.
Mary didn't give up. She went before a judge and demanded her right to study. The judge allowed her to go to school, but only at night. Mary didn't let any obstacles stand in her way. She kept working, and went on to become the first black female engineer at NASA.
Mary is a reminder that anything is possible when you believe in yourself
